Actually it is College Ave and not a whole lot different today.

Great photo!
I have to point this out. I often admit that I am not a big fan of after-market wire wheels on model Ts. I rarely see original street scene photos where even one model T can be found with a set of after-market wire wheels on it. It is not because I don't look for them. One of the first few things I noticed in this photo was the wheels on what appears to be or not be a center-door sedan in the Ford dealer's doorway. It isn't a touring, or runabout. Could be a town car? I wish those people would move!
Anyway, great photo! Thanks Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Hi Wayne,
I to wish the people would move out of the way!
I agree the car in the Doorway does look like a Towncar--Notice the Roof is divided into 2 sections The Front which is smooth and the Rear which looks like fabric as on a Towncar
Also note this Photos is listed as No.3 I wonder where No.1 & 2 are?
Thanks for pointing this car out--I missed it
-Don

Hi Don,
The more I look at that car, the more I think it is a town car. Just can't tell for sure, it could be some kind of delivery? When was the last factory offered town car? 1917 or '18 I think?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Yeah, that makes sense Wayne,....probably the mayor's car, or a judge, or some local politician's car, a Town Car, all "fancied up" with accessories, including fancy wire wheels!......harold

Bruce's book says there were 17 Town Cars produced in 1919. There were a couple thousand plus in '17 & again in 18.

I used to live 12 miles on the Montana side of Kooskia which is 30 miles on the Montana side of Orofino on hiway 12. God's country for sure. Orofino once upon a time hosted the largest fish hatchery in the world. (I think. It was famous for something anyways and that was a long time ago (CRS)...)
