Now there's unsafe cranking at it's best.

Odd combination of brass radiator, oil cowl lights, electric headlights and non-demountables, with custom canopy. Maybe a "put-together "T" era beach wagon?

All parts fit fine for 1915, Harold. Could be a '16 too, but I think there is a contrast between the headlight and sidelight rims and the paint indicating brass rims(?)

Fender looks to be crowned with no bill. Tire is at the outside of fenders and a look at the axle suggests wide track? I would agree with put together T.

Didn't the 1915 come with brass rims on the headlights?
I agree the front track looks wider than standard.

Tony - Yes! Brass rims on headlights & cowl lights.

I think it's all 15.

Definitely not '15/'16 front fenders. Everything else could be brass era though. The windshield hinge appears to be the equal length ends like a '15 to early '17, however.
An interesting original era (maybe '30s?) photo of a depot hack. We know thousands of depot hacks were built in the '10s and '20s. Yet, era photos of them are rarely seen. It is also unusual for depot hacks to use the Ford cowl and windshield. That also could be an indication that the car was put together a bit later. It was done occasionally (the Ford cowl thing), just not a whole lot.
The swim suits also look more mid '30s, than they do earlier.
Another great photo! Thank you Jay.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
