As we all endure road construction season during the summer months, let’s check out this photograph of a 15-ton steam roller that was laying new pavement on King Street near Queen in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Note the rail tracks in the bottom left corner. Lord Mayor W.H. Harrison is the man standing in the middle and the workers, from left, are William Murray, Alf Tester, Harry Mathews, Curt Gordon and Ivan Armstrong.
