Snowplow in the early 1900s.

John Hammergren Dray Line 1907

John had a blade on his rig in order to grade the dirt streets in the summer and snow in the winter.   He was the dray man who hauled freight and milk, to and from the Great Northern Depot.  John cut ice in the winter and stored it in saw dust in two ice houses in Brandon.  He hauled ice to the residents of the city three times a week.
