In my day ...

There was a time, long ago, when big trucks with giant snowplows didn't exist. There weren't even smaller trucks that scatter granules that melt ice. The photo was taken in 1913 on South Central Avenue, Canonsburg, by Howard M. Taylor. Two teams of horses, one hitched to each end of a long board, scraped at least some of the snow off the road.
