I was asked what these cars are and cannot tell.

Ahh come on Rich you can tell us we won't say who told us, we'll keep it a secret. Why can't you tell us?

Because I don't know. I am not familiar with many makes. If I had to guess it would be Buick and Overland. There is better expertise here than any site I know of.
Thanks for your reply Denny.
Rich

Rich,

The larger car in front is a Norwegian Piecost and the one in the back if the picture is a British Henweigh.

Just trying to help out.

Interesting contrast in the cars. The front car must be almost seven feet tall at the roof line (based upon how high it is above the adults in the picture. The rear car cannot be much over six feet (if six feet?), also based upon the height of the adult next to it.

That front car must be HUGE! It does not appear to be an illusion due to angle or depth of field of the photo. I just don't see anything definitive on the first car. The hood is long, probably a big six or straight eight. The sloping of the hood louvers, common style fenders, and other details should be clues. But I could probably name a dozen cars I know it isn't. So far, I can't think of a specific marque to even look up for pictures.
The second car? Look at the rear window/light on the rear of the top. See the shape? There would be a slim chance that it could be an after-market piece. Other than that, there is one marque that used that shape window from their factory. Chandler. And they are not a small car, about the size of a Buick of the same years.
That window is the same shape as their radiator emblem, and is occasionally referred to as the "Chandler bow-tie".

For the large touring, maybe a 1916-1918 Haynes "light 6" or "Light 12"???

I just noticed the "H" in the center rear window of the ad, and it appears the car in the photo has one as well.

If thats not just an illusion, then it probably IS a Haynes--or a Henweigh....

the car bringing up the rear has an Hudson-Essex or Dort vibe to it.......

Denny, I'll play. I know you want someone to ask "what's a Henweigh"?
Go ahead, your turn.

Tommy, hear is the answer you were looking for:

what's a Henweigh, About four to six pounds.


You may also be interested in this useless information as well about Norwegian Piecost:

Joker: Too bad we don't have a pie-cost.
Victim: What's a pie-cost?
Joker: Oh, about six bucks

I think the man standing between the two vehicles, with his hat pulled down must be in witness protection.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Haynes does seem to be a match. The doors on the smaller car puzzle me. They are short and seem to over lap the body all around.
Thanks for the input. I will pass it on to the fellow who shared these. They seem to be his relatives.
FWIW on the back of photo:

I do enjoy that site. I was not successful in participating there even though I am a member and have a password some where. There is good expertise here and several of the same participants.
Thanks
Rich

I'm satisfied it's a Haynes ! The other car is a puzzle. The door and handle arrangement seem at odds with the Hudson/Essex suggestion. Seems like the hood is rounded to a point with a shoulder that makes it Packard-like. It's certainly not a Packard, but many marques copied those cues, just enough removed to avoid trouble with Packard; Studebaker and Buick among them. The rear car is neither of those, I'm thinking.

The car in back has that 45 degree top of body and doors and it looks like down the hood also which Hudson and Essex did a lot of. But there was a car similar to that on here awhile back with the 45 degree top that was either Chalmers or Chandler.

Bingo Steve. Now I recall Chandler having the odd shaped rear window. 1923 Chandler Model 32 at the RM Auctions. I had not noticed that before.
The doors match also.

Good work fellows !! The "off-brand" cars lend much interest and history to the forum. I love to see them !
