These are some old family photos that I believe are of a 1915 but I'm not sure. The cowl lamps look right but the head lights look to be acetylene.

It sure looks like a 1915. No louvers on the hood, shinny rims on the lights and no crown on rear fenders.

It's hard to tell from the small scans, but aren't those crowned rear fenders?

They appear to be flat.

Probably John Brown gas headlights, (with the four hole bonnets).

The Prest-O-Lite tank seems to be in the driver side running board "tool box" with the valve sticking out the forward end. The boxes had a rack inside for the acetylene tank and it was a good way to lock up your B Tank back in the day.

Looks like he got the hood off the '14 as well as the headlights and props.

I'd smack that kid off my fender.

Maybe he told that KID to stand there or was not worried about it! :-)

I think the kid is on the fence.

Louvered hoods were standard in 1915. If the car is a 1915 or 16 - and it looks like that to me - the hood is from an earlier T.
