Harder Than It Looks

It looks like being one of the Mounties on duty at Expo '67 was easy work, right? Well, while Montreal can be pretty chilly in the winter, it can also get warm and humid in the summer. This shot was taken in July 1967, so that wool uniform might have been a bit warm. And let's think about how much fun it would have been to have to sit still and pose for pictures. Still, I bet the Mountie had a ball at Expo. The mood that summer was electric, and to have been part of it would have been something not easily forgotten.

That's one well trained horse.
