I wonder if all of those buggies were trade ins?
Must have been a gang of horse thieves around town that day!
Or there was a recent sale on Model T Fords!
Never seen a street scene like that before!
There are two other cars in the background:
Appears to have the same rear seat as the front - Tourabout ?
It looks like a clamshell rear end. It has the lines of a Ford tourabout but the steering wheel looks too big for a Ford.
It certainly has the silhouette of a '09 or '10 T. It would take more than the steering wheel shadow to convince me otherwise.
You could get an eye poked out walking in that town or driving a T ! HA!
Funny it looks like a protest against cars by not letting them park next to the board walk.
All those buggys and not a horse in sight! Kind of spooky....
While many early cars had similar looks, Ford was one of the most plentiful cars. Additionally it was the most plentiful car back then to have the steering wheel on the left side in the USA and most other brands still had the steering wheel on the right side (up through 1910 ref: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/infrastructure/right.cfm -- but I think even a little later. But I didn't find a good reference for that hunch). That combined with the overall shape and look, make it likely that it is a Ford Tourabout 1910 model year.

Its a Horseless Carriage !!!!!!
A whole LOT of carriages without horses there!
(But I like the ones with engines the best!)
Thanks all !
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Bethany hahaha I'm from Trenton originally:?) Nice to see a nostalgic photo of our homeland:?)
Eric, I'm from Mound City, not too terribly far from Trenton. I had an old Army buddy from there back in the late '60's/early '70's, but I've lost track of him. Name was Ernie Schieb, used to hang around the dirt track guys a lot. Ever hear of him? Dave
