Back before street sweeper vehicles inspired dance-like automotive choreography and shenanigans, the streets were kept clean with a literal 2-horse-powered street sweeper cart, seen here in this vintage photograph from around 1905.

What's ironic here is that the street sweepers were there to wash away horse urine and feces, yet was also pulled by two horses!
