Kevin,

Not to worry. Most of us would rather have them posted several times than to not have them posted at all.

And yes it was discussed earlier at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/423306.html?1392132994 with the same photo located in the New Zealand National library at the link below:

Great photo of a T serving its family. And yes, parts from several years. Thank you for posting it.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

A '13 with '12 style windshield braces? Not a '12 body, also has the bead on the fender panel. The hood is louvered which could be after-market or a '15 style changed a few years later. It may be right hand drive, and may be 30X3.5 front tires which could indicate Canadian build. B&W photo makes it difficult to tell, but the top may be off white, very unusual in USA cars back in the day, although popular on restorations of the '50s. I would guess the picture was taken in Australia or New Zealand (could be somewhere else in the Southern hemisphere?). Louvered hoods were a very common after-market item on brass Ts in Australia.
The car looks to be a few years old and well used, but still has a treadless front tire. The rear appears to be treaded (often called "non-skid" whether they had the words molded into the tread or not), but with white sidewalls as was common on cheaper tires of the late '10s.

Great photo! Thank you Kevin W!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Lots of differences from a USA model. Look at the door handles. Yes, that photo has been around.
