Might be the town marshal. Almost looks like he's wearing a badge.

Looks like a Canadian model. Notice the windshield, horn tube, and L.H. door handle and 30X 3 1/2's in the front. The splash shield is also interesting.

Interesting stripping on a 13 touring. Was the stripping done at the factory or Dealer?

Interesting that the body appears to have a pretty good shine while the hood, fenders, splash apron & running board look flat.

Could this be due to a color difference or what ?

Of course I can't say with certainty, but it looks like a two tone paint job to me.

Note that there is no pinstriping either on the hood that has a different color than the body.

looks like a Canadian RHD to me (if the photo isn't flipped) Canadian cars were pin striped like this. Here is an original Canadian unrestored car pic of a door.

Vest suggests the photo is not flipped. Seems like we would see the horn on the firewall if the car were RHD.

If the connection to Kootenai Brown ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kootenay_Brown )
is correct, then the car may well be Canadian.

Ken

I flipped the photo and the Horn location is confusing me. It is a Canadian car with 30 x 3 1/2 tires all around. looks even more RHD with the photo reversed. might explain why the horn isn't there.

Did RHD cars have the speedometer gear on the left front wheel?

No, Keith, they didn't have the speedo drive on the left front wheel. Must be a LHD car as in the original top photo?

The horn bulb is mounted the same way on my Canadian built 1913 touring car.
