Looks like a Maxwell to me. 1910 maybe?

There's 12 people in that photo (13 including the photographer?). Do you suppose half of them were in the first auto? 1914 photo.

Were the tire tubes sectional? It looks like the tires have four valve stems.

Quite a load on the rear tires. :-)

What you are seeing are actually rim clamps that keep the tire from rotating.

Front tire has a laced 'boot' around the casing.

And as Royce posted, here is an illustration of rim bolts as used on early clincher tire/wheels. The butterfly like bolt secured the clincher tire to the rim.

Looks like a 1905 or 06, Maxwell H. The rear door on those two years swung in word. These cars were quiet advanced for there time. They had a 2 cyl 5x5, 3 speed progressive trans drive shaft and steel skinned body. There are two of these sitting in our shed. One owed by myself and one is my brothers.
