Found this photo online in the Nova Scotia provincial archives. Dated 1910. Is the Thing a 10?

US Fords were always equipped with a windshield beginning with model year 1910. Maybe Canadian production didn't make the windshields standard equipment until later?

Most Nova Scotia cars were right hand drive in 1910 as we drove on the left side of the road until 1923 when we changed the law to
'Keep to the Right' hand side of the road. Great photo - I wonder where they were...

Roger,

The open cars were still offered without windshield and to in 1910 model year. From the Ford Times October 1, 1910:


Gas lamps, top, windshield and speedometer now standard equipment on the Touring, Tourabout and Runabout. Closed cars still supplied less the gas lamps. "Unequipped" open cars available on special order.

I was looking at a Canadian 1911 with no windshield or top

I keep looking back here hoping someone would have identified the other car. I am fairly certain it is not a Buick. Unless I miscounted, the front wheels appear to have fourteen spokes. That is somewhat unusual. Some Fuller models had fourteen spokes, as did the first Brush automobiles, although they went to twelve soon after. And that is NOT a Brush.
It appears to be a fairly small car, circa 1908/09. But I can't place it.

I am not sure the T is a tourabout. It looks like there may be an open door under the man's wrist?
I also am not sure which type running boards it has. But the front fenders seem to have the sharp forward bills. Royce?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Wayne, I count 12, and I think I have an inkling of what it may be. I think it is a Russell. Built in canada, popular in Nova Scotia around that time.
