Herb,

If you have a link etc. to a higher resolution photo -- please let me know.

Notice the T has the 1915-16 style brass radiator and flat front fenders and curved rear fenders without a crown. It also has the equal length windshield hinges and the riveted windshield brackets. But it has the metal end caps on the seat arms. Bruce McCalley (R.I.P.) on page 229 of his book "Model T Ford" comments on a similar car and states, "This car is no doubt a late 1916; close examination of the original [photo] shows the front arm rest has the metal cap instead of the leather roll. This change is typical of teh 1917 and later cars an dis unusual for 1916's."

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
