Allen Cab

Allen Cab Company's garage on Delmar looks somewhat out of place among the non-descript warehouses that surround it. One of the city's oldest black taxi services, the building housing its dispatcher resembles archietecture you might see somewhere in Europe, Brussels perhaps. The gabled tile roof, the most distinctive aspect of its design, evokes a Flemish ambiance, a striking contrast to the adjacent Club Chinchilla and Club 747 nightclubs.
