That town's name reminds me of John Beresford Tipton. Remember him?
The Ford touring has a windshield setup like a Torpedo.

I like the white sign:
I guess they get about everyone's business when folks come to town and probably know everyone's business too!
A lot of people standing facing the camera
They were probably wishing for the brick streets of Eldorado.
Dennis, we have a small town nearby that has a Mortuary and furniture store.
I love these pictures.
Today, we have Xypexco, a totally ambiguous name with an utterly meaningless motto, like:
"Working today for a safer tomorrow"
"Because we care"
"'No' is the new 'Yes'"
In Model T times, a person would walk in and shake the owner's hand and ask for a job. Today, we submit an online
application with a formatted resume, cover letter, and letter of intent, which a computer program scans for key words,
and if passed, to then forward to an actual set of human eyes to review. HR will then take over and "process". 3 to 24
months with then elapse for interviewing and testing, before a decision is made to hire a "better suited" applicant.
In Model T times, if you didn't perform on the first day, you were shown the door.
There is something about straight talking and honesty I find really attractive.
