  1. Okay… I NEED those reading in bed glasses! And… as a Canadian I feel the need to comment on the face protection from snowstorms. … WTF??! First off, they look deadly to other pedestrians that might be blown in your way during said snowstorm. Next, those fancy ladies would be more worried about their hairdos I am sure. Also, those ridiculous masks would fog up then, frost up, making visibility impossible. I could go on, but I’ll spare you!
    Thanks for the laughs!!

    • You are very welcome 🙂 The face protection could double as a weapon, just in case you need some self-defense. LOL. I guess they were more practical in those days 🙂 A little insane too…

  4. What a truly astonishing collection of photographs. I would be a bit nervous about the folding bridge but I think I would enjoy scooping people up with that car shovel.
