Dr. Jamieson’s marvelous snow machine

It was an old Model T with half-tracks on the back and skis on the front. And it enabled the good doctor to get to his patients in the depths of winter


In the 1920s and 1930s when winter appeared . . . cars disappeared. Few roads were plowed and virtually none of the country roads were kept open.

In those days, as soon as the temperature dropped below zero, the car went into the shed, was drained of water, put up on blocks and left for the winter.
