Ninth Avenue at Main Street, looking east on Ninth. The building on the northeast corner was a restaurant until recently. I don't recall what's in there now. The building on the other corner is now Corner Bank. Arkansas City and Winfield both had trolley systems, and there was also an interurban line between the two towns.
Not changed too much.
That's a good one Jay.
I bet that is a wing script radiator if it could be lightened up.
Is that Steve standing on the sidewalk in the foreground? Can't quite make out if there is a tape measure clipped to the front of his bibs.
Both the Model T on the far left and the one turning the corner are the 1909-1910 style. Both have the bills on the front fenders so they are not normally one of the first 2500 or so Ts. But the cars were still offered without a windshield as late as Sep 1909 (ref page 485 Bruce McCalley's book "Model T Ford" shipping documents). A Sep 1909 car was sold as a 1910 back in the day although now days it would be called a 1909. But since the winged script was continued into 1910 model year it is most likely that both of those cars had the winged script on the tank. See radiators: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/P-R.htm#rad
