I think that is a T in the back.
There appears to be more buildings in this picture than the actual town today....
Reo? White? Dodge? front row. We don't get nearly that much mud anymore. Must be global warming.
Great picture herb.
And they hung the flag wrong.
Is that a trolley on the far right behind the Dodge ??
The Ford behind them is thinking this is no fun, you all are sitting in the deepest spot!
Isn't the upside down flag a distress signal? Looks pretty distressed to me!
Depends from which side you are viewing the flag.
A storm that generated that much rain also probably generated some pretty high winds that may have caused the flag to twist and then begin to wind around the staff, so that it appears to be mounted wrong, but really isn't. The date is very difficult to see but it appears to be 1919. If that is correct, then it was just after the conclusion of the Great War when Americans were generally very patriotic and treated the flag with the utmost respect and if it was mounted wrong, I'm sure it would have been noticed and corrected in a hurry.

Judging by the date of the cars, the picture predates any rules for displaying the US flag (1923). While it may be "wrong" today, the flag in the picture is being displayed proudly.
Here it is again a bit changed...
