Vancouver snow shovel
When it snows in Vancouver, the ill-prepared residents have been known to cobble together so-called “Vancouver snow shovels” to shift the snowfall. As it seldom snows, and then usually lightly, the makeshift shovels are used to push the snow off the sidewalk, rather than to lift and pile it. This shovel was made of a piece of plywood fit into what was possibly an old broom handle. One side of the plywood was once painted yellow.
