That looks like a Mercer! Who hit who?

Val,
Since the law says when two vehicles approach an intersection at the same time the one on the right has the right of way, clearly the Mercer violated the Fords right of way. Besides, we all know that a Ford driver could not have made such an error! :-) :-)

Val is correct on the Mercer. There is a nice article in the February Hemmings Classic Car #125 on a 1922 Series 5 Raceabout if you want to compare details with this one.

Looks like that little Ford held its own pretty well against that Mercer! Those Mercers are fairly heavy cars for a sports car. Amazing!
Thanks Jay!
Do drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I say the Ford is a fault because of it's lousy brakes.

In Stanley's photo,

I wonder if most of the brass cars with electric lights in their gas lamps are running off the magneto?

Well, I can't speak for most, but my '14 has had the gas lamps electrified (likely by the original owner).
