The man in the passenger seat certainly looks like Henry Ford. Who the driver is, is anybody's guess. The scene looks like Detroit.

Henry Ford is on the left in the drivers seat.

Henry Ford is on the RIGHT in the driver's seat. That is to say, on the RIGHT side of the car.

Harold, we're both correct, I was writing about on the left of the photo.

Tim,

I resemble that remark. :-)

The passenger is known, I just can't find the name.

Erich, thanks for posting,

Rob

I don't believe either man is Henry Ford in the photo.

I have no doubt the driver is Henry Ford. Other similar pics of HF.

Well, I don't know Royce,....but when you look at the first and last photo in this thread, it's pretty convincing that those two guys are one in the same. Of course, maybe it's not HF in either the first and last picture. (???) However, they've all passed on so I guess it rally doesn't matter,....(certainly not to them anyway.)

The apartment house in the photo looks like he ones in the area near the Piquette Plant, although there are not a lot of them left. Henry lived within walking distance of the plant at that time.

Maybe it's just me but in several these pictures young Mr. Ford looks like Steve Martin - and if you think that's who it is in the photo, it makes it REALLY funny.
