Cabmen’s Shelter – Russel Sqaure

Now a cafe that welcomes all customers, this and the other huts catered only to cabbies during the 19th Century. It was here that drivers would leave their horse-drawn carriages before heading inside for a spot of lunch. At peak, there were around 60 shelters, however these have dwindled down to just 13, of which the Little Green Hut is one. What’s crazy is that despite welcoming all customers, cabbies are the only ones who can actually go inside. I actually popped by and got a coffee to go which was decent. However, the focus here isn’t the food, but the rich history these huts have. Something truly unique to see and snap for the gram.
