Happy Times in Haney – Port Hammond, British Columbia: These cheerful members of the Haney Athletic Club who took to the highway in their trusty Model “T” Ford almost one hundred years ago were spreading the word about the Baseball Dance at the Agricultural Hall on April 19th. Learn all about the occasion and see another photo and much more @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=111387
cowl light and headlight both missing glass on left side at least 3 different style tires on the car. looks like they are having fun!
Great pic! Out "cruisin chicks."
Thank you for posting,
That is neat. What do we figure the car is, 1917 or 1918? Could be later. It must be a non starter car because the crank handle is shiny clean. One oil lamp is either open or broken due to the rowdy conditions that car has to face.
Interesting that they have a windshield and some of them are wearing goggles. Do you think they had a practice of standing up and riding?
It looks like both front tires are agricultural
That is one "experienced" '17 or '18, with the wishbone above the axle and an accessory brace below. "Cruising chicks" indeed, probably hoping to get dates for the dance in the process. Pretty simple spare carrier, just hang it on the top support. What a fun pic!
Looks to have oval top-irons which would be an early '17 US but maybe not for Canada.

What is your guess on the year?
Possible choices are 1921, 1927 and 1932.
its got one of those cool "more lite " headlight lenses. must provide so much more light that you only need one
That spare tire matches the one on the right front. I have a set with a similar traction tread. I don't thing there would have been ag tires like that in 1920, there was virtually nothing that used rubber tires on equipment that early unless it was made from Model T's or other old cars.
It has Hasslers on the back. Interesting that guys from the Athletic Club smoked back then. I'll bet the kid driving is the son of the guy sitting in the left rear seat.
Sorry it's Tuesday not Thursday
Check out the "guys" on the porch.
And that drug store probably has heroin and morphine by prescription only. I wonder if he also has some Yohimbe bark?
Thomas is right, it's either 1921, 1927 or 1932. I'm thinking that it can't be 1921 because the car looks older than just 3 or 4 years old. However, The Old Motor website caption says, "...on April 19th in the early 1920's".
I'm guessing 1927.
You could possibly check the Haney newspapers from that time period and find an ad for the event.
I would say its a 21 low hood, straight up windshield
I don't think it has a radiator cap either.
