Judging by the integral top strap rings on the headlamp / fender brackets and the plastic crank handle it is an early 1912 T, perhaps made in November or December of 1911.

Herb,
It looks like it says Hutchinson on the emblem on the radiator. It is hard to tell...does it say Kansas in the rectangle below that? I have never seen an emblem like that. Hutchinson (or Hutch as the locals call it) is about 50 mi NW of Wichita (family ties to that town). I know it is asking a lot but a better photo of that area would be nice.
Thanks for all the photos!!!
Verne Shirk
Wichita, KS

I read the text in the lower rectangle as "PHOTOS", but it's faint..

I can see it clearly as Hutchison Photos.

What's the point of the belt wrapped around the cross member and axle?

It's a rebound strap, popular in the early years when roads between cities were bad or non existent. Ford used straps like that on the cross country racers in 1909.

Evidently the name of the photo company. Kansas town is spelled "Hutchinson" No "n" in the tag on the photo

You all are probably right about the Hutchison and the name Photos in the rectangle. I missed the "n" and just can't see the rectangular box well enough. I had an aunt that spelled her last name Hutchison...perhaps this guy was related!?!?

I wonder what that wrench was used for? It has a strange shape.

Norman, maybe one of these Alligator wrenches.

Clayton, the add says they are for pipe and round iron. I have seen many wrenches similar to these and always wondered what they were for. Dave
