This picture depicts a motorized vehicle with a front-mounted plough blade designed to push snow toward the right side of the street. A key feature was the use of tracks that provided the vehicle with better traction and prevented it from getting stuck in the show. This type of vehicle made its first appearance in Montreal in the 1920s. The Montreal department of highways used it up until 1935.
