In an era of relatively slow cars and roads, they seem to have had some crazy crashes that would rival anything today.

Hey, it looks like a TORPEDO! :-)

Good analogy Dave. What in the world would cause this car to pitch-pole and land on its nose like that? Not like the front brakes seized up causing to flip!

Don't think it is a Ford. No splash shields; different fenders and what looks like carriage lights for sidelights. Must have been the quick application of the early accessory front brakes that did the deed. :-)

It's a Ford Model R, but with what I think is an add-on M.I.L. seat.

I think it is a Ford, pre T like Jerry said. The caption said he hit a large pot hole. Must'a been a doozy.

This photo must have been taken in a very early suburb of Cleveland. If you leave your car for more then a few minutes the tires are stolen!

They may be working on taking the car apart to haul it away. I'm guessing that in the right side of the photo is the back corner of a wagon or truck and another car is just down the road on the left side of the photo.

They are Model R fenders and the Model R has no splash aprons. It also has the door in the hood. The guy driving must of had a hell of a headache after meeting that pole and sent his brother back on his bicycle to figure out how to right the car.
