It seems as though that hoss is fixin' to go the wrong way on a one-way street. It also seems as though the car with the man squatting down in front of it has suffered a Failure To Proceed.

I think the guy squatting down in front of that car is showing the others how he can crank his car with his teeth! :-)

Another great photo.

Do any of the cars have drivers or passengers?

Oh yeah, .... THAT'S an improvement ! FTD !

I hope everyone is wearing helmets and working on their "self esteem" (insert puking icon here)

On a happier note, L-to-R: ??? , Franklin, Ford. Whatever that ??? car is on the left, it sure does
have a long hood !

I don't think that's a Franklin. It looks as though it has a brass radiator, or at least some kind of shiny broad strip around the hood opening. Franklins were painted right up to the edge of the opening, with maybe a thin brass trim strip. Also, I don't believe any barrel-front Franklins had flared fenders like that. That said, I don't have a good guess as to what it is.

I do not know what the car with the long hood is? But my first guess would be Thomas Flyer six? I know a bunch of cars it is not. I do think that the car next to it is a Pope Hartford. Probably about 1908 based on the fenders. The Ford next to it is about 1911. (How is that for a guess? One year either way and I am close!) The car behind the T Ford looks vaguely familiar, but I cannot place it.
I really can't find enough detail to identify any other cars in the picture. The one along the side of the building looks like it could be a T? Or maybe not. Anyone else care to stick their neck out?
A wonderful photo! Thanks Herb and all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Here's another discussion about early cars with barrel hoods except Franklin:

National and Cameron were suggested. Some type of european import could also be an unlikely possibility?

1904 National:
national

1907 air cooled Cameron:
cameron

Wayne,

Not bad on your estimate of the year. The items below narrow it down a little more to 1909-10. And the bills on the front fender indicate it is generally considered after the first 2500 cars. (Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1909.htm )


Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
