Toronto Ontario, 1912. I'm not sure what car this is, Cadillac? I bet a Model T would have made it down that road ok.
Thanks again David. Glad your here.
been a long winter, garage keeps getting frozen shut so I have seen about every old car on the net!
well, all those folks are just standing there! why dont they get out and help push!
What!? And get mud on MY shoes!
well it could be a Russel!! i have a 1911,but i have seen so many pic they are starting to all look alike,like today's cars. charley
Looks to me like the car is just parked on the left side of the road and the folks are just chatting.
It aint stuck, stopped or parked, but not stuck.
Aaron, I was wondering about that myself. It seems nobody is trying to free it from the mud. Nobody is near the hood so not likely broken down either. What is odd is the size of the crowd. It's not like the sight of a car in a city like Toronto in 1912 would be a spectacle either.
They are waiting for the street car and had nothing better to do then look at the car. Looks like street car power lines in the upper part of the photo.
it very well could be a Russel i looked at my rad it is the same with the bead at the edge of the core& the notch for the crank. demontable wheels could be had in 1911. steering wheel looks the same to.charley
Was/is it the same Russel who made steam engines?? Bud.
