A diverse group of (presumed) passengers taking advantage of a photo opp with the street car poised between two impressive walls of snow. Note on reverse reads; "This will give you a small idea of the quantity of snow we had this winter."

Nice to see children in the image as well - although the little girl up top seems less than pleased with her perch. Also of note, apparently there was more than one photographer at the scene - the woman on the left is clutching a camera of her own.

Great to get one with a camera in the picture ... I wonder what the word ending in EUM was.

Yes -- has to be although it doesn't look like there is enough space left for ORPH.

I see the name of Ab. Templin on the playbill -- according to the Tribune, he was the pianist and conductor of something called Baroni's Syncopated Orchestra (in 1922), which looks like an early jazz band.
