from Alex Emond: "Another Swift Current showboat, a 1960 Meteor. This might be what was called a Rideau 500 which was made at the Ford factory in Ontario. That is quite the crazy flourish of chrome across the front door . Land yacht, par excellance."-AE

Pouring concrete, second day, in snow flurries here. Getting it done…"
