I'll take the lot!

The stuff on No. 1's running board is giving it a pronounced list to starboard - look at the spaces between the front fenders and the tires. The non-Ford is a Maxwell.
Third T from the left looks like it is an early water pump car and has no bill fenders.

Rebound straps were popular in those pioneer days - maybe they had seen the picture of the Ford cross country racers and copied them?
Can anyone zoom in on the radiator neck of that third car?
Not sure which "third car," so both. The T looks like an early "waterpump" car:
It looks like the child in the Maxwell is looking at the Ford longingly....... Might be young Eric Hylen, wishing he had an early Ford instead......... Just sayin......
Even at that young age, the child is wondering why the heck the Ford would have a water pump. As we all know, John D. Maxwell used thermosiphon right from the start in '04. He didn't need to experiment with water pump cars for five years before figuring out how the build a "Perfectly Simple, Simply Perfect" car.
