It looks like it was a hot day when this photo was taken in North Adams, Massachusetts, c. 1908. (I think this must be the left-hand side of a panoramic shot of Main Street in North Adams, with the photo in Saturday’s post being the right-hand side.)

There’s a grocer’s wagon, an omnibus with all of its windows lowered, lots of people evidently trying to stay in the shade and, in the lower right corner, a girl wearing a big hat and holding an umbrella, while sitting in a light four-wheeled vehicle.
