Early Ford T in foreground of shorpy photo. I will try to post.
Early T titled "circa 1910"

Let's see if I have loaded it correctly.

Ken, thanks for posting and thank you Gerald for the Shorpy link. Yes, that car looks like a Wide track in the link. The early 09 and 10 cars look like they have more space between the spring perch and the end of the axle. (Later axles were more V shaped on the axle end and this made that distance look less), but I think you are correct, it is a wide-track.

It's a wide track 1909. Nice!

It looks like the T is a few years old-could be a 1910, too. The Jacksonville plate was issued in 1911-12. Looks like the firewall is delaminating. The car parked behind the T is quite old (8-9 years?), but look at the finish on it-looks shiny.
Great photo, thanks for the close-ups.

Is she reading a map or newspaper
?

Richard,
I respectfully disagree. It appears to have the front frame horn attached to a 1/2 elliptic spring, not full elliptic springs like the early Fords had.

The flag in the picture is 46 states...used from July 1908 to July 1912. Great photo, thanks for posting!!

The car behind the Model T Ford appears to be a Columbia Electric. That would explain the lady driver and the fact that the car looks so nice and new.

Columbia

Jeff

Great call on the flag!
I missed it completely and couldn't even see the stars until I did a zoom.
