That circus wagon looks like one of the wagons I have seen at Circus World Museum. Most likely the circus parade above is the Ringling Bros.

ROOMS 15 cents a day!
sO MANY MODEL T Fords, and every city in the country was just as full of them.
Easy to believe there were 15 million built.

Soulard Fruit & Produce was at 1700 South 9th St. It is now a gift store called The Porch.

Erich,

Thank you and others for posting the old photos. The tail lamp got me to take a closer look at the photo above. Note the passenger rear door and how it has the square corner at the bottom and appears longer than the normal 1914-1925 rear doors. That targets a 1913 model year touring where the doors went all the way down to the sill. The early 1912 and 1911s had a curved rear bottom and had external door handles. The later 1912s did away with the outside door handle but still were shorter than 1913 and they have a curved lower corner. And the 1909-1910 while they had a square corner at the bottom – they also had an outside door handle and were not as long as the 1913 model year doors.

And the tail lamp? I think it is probably a Victor based on the shape. Although a higher resolution photo would make it easier to confirm or correct that assumption. Or someone more familiar with how they look – we would welcome corrections or confirmation. Bruce on page 167 comments “…Victor tail lamp, used in part of 1913.” Photo courtesy of Layden Butler see: http://home.comcast.net/~laydenandjean/site/?/photos/ near the top of the photos.






Again thank you and others for posting the early photos. And of course if anyone has higher resolution copies etc. please let us know.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

In the next photo after the one Hap was talking about, there is an interesting roadster backed up to the kerb. The top looks to have been replaced with something rigid and it has a squared off side window. I have seen a similar thing done on a later 50s Vauxhall tourer. Each section between each bow was replaced with a neatly fitted sheetmetal panel and sealed at each joint. Painted a similar colour to the canvas usually used, it passed as a tourer but was completely weather proof. Had it been vinyl covered, it would have been even better.

Allan from down under.

Great pictures of St Louis and Model T's. My niece lives in St Louis. We went to her wedding reception which was held at the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel. It is the tall light colored building in the sixth picture down.

wonder if that was a funeral for a dignatary?
Dang cool pics Erich!
And that bridge...do you suppose it'll hold up under "all" that weight of those cars? Talk about overkill
