Butterflies

in the cab trade, are those drivers who take to the occupation only in summer-time, and at the best of the season. At other times they follow some other occupation.

“The feeling of the regular drivers against these `butterflies' is very strong.” —Nineteenth. Century (March, 1893, p. 177).
