So many old photos have a sign that says "Look out for the cars"
You don't see that today.
Not many streetcars today.
I hope this was a lunch break, otherwise it looks like a typical Union job,..3 guys working, 9 guys leaning on their shovels supervising..
The guys that left their shovel's back at the Depot will just have to lean on each other!!
Are all these guys Steve's relatives? The only thing their missing is the tape measure in the top bib pocket.
Looks like the summer help they hire around here...everyone standing around doing nothing with a blank look on their face waiting for lunch hour.
They still work on roads that way today--A couple of guys holding onto shovels and around 10 supervisors. The only thing that's missing is they all don't have cell phones pressed to their ears. Perhaps they just got off coffee break from the café across the street.
Before the obesity epidemic. Not a real porker in the bunch. They must get some exercise.
The time was when pedestrians were warned by signs to watch out for cars. Now the drivers of cars have signs and are warned about pedestrians and labours.
I think the sign says look out for Trolley Cars
Similar R.R. sign.
Looking out for cars is a way of life here. Pedestrians only have the right of way IN a designated crosswalk, when/where there is one. You get hit by a car and cause the driver to have an accident. When you get out of the hospital you could quite possibly go to jail for causing an accident. Here, everyone is responsible for their own actions.
It would be interesting to see more of that engine that runs the cement mixer.
Gary, here someone else is always responsible for your actions. Everything that happens to you is someone else's fault! Makes the lawyers happy 'cause you can't sue yourself!
I bet their boss and the city would like to see that engine run on the cement mixer too!
