The T is photo bombing this street vendor unloading 4 qt. baskets of--- peaches, apples, oranges?? from his IHC High-Wheeler.

Is that kid helping out, or getting ready to pinch a treat while the old man is busy?

Captioned "Automobile on the market in Hamilton (Ont.) 29 Sept. 1916."

Dale, I'm always thankful for these old photos ! This is a dandy, how many high-wheel IHCs do you ever get to see ?
The T peeking into the scene is just a plus.

I don't think there's snow on the ground, and the produce looks too large and spherical to be spuds (I'm a native Idahoan - I should know 'taters ! ; ) ) I think I see a stem or two, I'll say apples . . . as for the kid, who knows ? I hope he was an honest lad !

It looks like the streets are just wet. The guy is taking a tarp off of his IHC, and the guys across the street are also uncovering their wares- probably a quick cloudburst cover-up and now theyll be back in business.
