I’m not sure whether the stuff on the street in this photo is rain or snow … it looks suspiciously like snow, although it could be rain and the “white” we see might actually be sunshine. A summer storm, perhaps? Nevertheless, the somewhat dreary mood I pick up from this photo matches our still-cool, dreary “spring” weather here today.

This photo was taken in Montreal, Canada, c. 1916. There are two work vehicles with teams (pairs) of draft horses; two men driving light, private vehicles to single horses; a couple of motorcars; and streetcars in the background.
