Toronto Ontario. Looks like a Cadillac to me. Hopefully I'm right this time.

Nope, that's a horse drawn water wagon. :-)

He is about to cross some train tracks. It appears those things at an angle may be crossing guards either coming down or going up. I know some of you guys are railroad historians. When did the signal arms come into being?

I apologize Dave. I had to say it because I have no idea what that car is.

crossing guards a hundred years ago, and yet people still run into trains!

I'm sure train gates were unusual then but, looking at the background and everything in that photo, I'm pretty sure those people are heading to The Canadian National Exhibition, a massive fair that has run since 1879 and still does. The crowds are enormous and uncontrolled crossings on the tracks would have been a disaster.

Looks like a scene from the old Long Beach Model T Swap Meet when it was at Hamilton Bowl c.1975.

The big difference is that the horse was replaced by a Ton Truck.
