"Greasy" was the euphemism used at the time. A cobbled street with a generous coating of horse buns and urine. They stank and attracted flies...which is one reason why anyone who could afford to got out of the city in the supper. Chains were originally introduced to deal with mud in the countryside and greasy streets in the city. Practically no one drove in snow.
