Great old photos like usual Jay, you amaze me. This is the 2nd photo I've seen of the roll up rear section of the top. Was this just mods people did themselves back then to make it more comfortable?

John - No, the roll up rear curtain was standard equipment on all open Model T's up through the '14's. That said, there are lots of '15 and later open car owners who put them on also because they like them.

On my '14, I leave the rear curtain rolled up all summer for the great ventilation.

Great picture. Just a trivial note on roll-up rear curtains. Most people roll the material towards the back which allows water to fill the roll. If you roll it towards the front it will shed water.

Looks like it's probably a '13.

Any idea what the signs on the sidewalk (22+00) signify?

Paul,

Those are "stations" in reference to a set of engineering plans. Could be for street, underground improvements or any of a number other types of infrastructure. There is another one just ahead and he is on 50 foot stations (22+50).

My guess is that it refers to the street car rail line/electric lines as the engineer is calling out a feature in the street right of way at 22+15 (15 feet ahead of 22+00 and to the left).

Standing on this corner today you would be looking at the Barclay Center.

I know Flatbush Ave. ( at least parts of it). I wonder what the cross street is?

Cross street is Dean.
