Explanation:
I did several Google searches, and apparently the only place these three words occur together in English in are in Katherine Mansfield's story "The Daughters of the Late Colonel"

At the time the story was published (1922), cabs were automobiles. I was unable to locate any precise explanation of what she means here. But what I understand is that the cab felt "close" as if there were no air circulating.
