Reading the caption, this could be an interesting car. Seems to have several after-market accessories even though most of the car is hidden behind people.
Looks like a c:a 1920 touring with a front fender brace and Hassler shocks. White sides on the tires as usual for the period. May have been two families, two sisters? - with four kids each? One of the husbands may have been behind the camera.
I wonder what the pennant said? Maybe "Redding"? Since the picture is from the northeast, maybe it's Redding, CT?
It has the double rear windows yet still has the early windshield. Would that be late '22?
But the body looks like a pre '21 with a separate quarter panel in the rear?
Top looks much newer than the car. Could be a replacement.
I think you guys are right. With all those kids, one of them probably did something to the original top. I would imagine that if someone brought their car back to the dealer for a new top in 1924, that is what they would get. Most owners would not be jumping up and down, demanding a correct, triple window top. I would, which is probably why I was not born in those days.
It looks like the right rear fender already has the usual 'sitting on the fender to much' look.
I wonder what the hood would have looked like after the boys got off of it.
A nice pic from the era of friends and family which is nice to see.
I thought the old lady lived in a shoe not a Ford Touring. Another photo proving that the rhythm method doesn't work!
If you haven't done it, click on the Shorpy link attached by Dane Hawley, then click on the photo presented and you will see a very clear enlargement.
What is the bracket looking device on the rear axle where the spring attaches? It does not look like any perch that I have seen.
Today's digital cameras have nothing on the glass negative cameras back in the 20's. To me, this is a truly amazing photograph.
Accessory Hassler shocks !
Steve's right. Hassles on the front too. It's amazing how clear the photo is.
Hasslers, darn typing with one finger....
