They must be getting ready to go to a parade or a show. The wheels have ribbon on them and the cab has a display on it.

Very cool photo! Note that in addition to just being a great period photo, it adds a new dimension to an ongoing debate on this forum. The "black is the only correct color for Model T wheels" crowd and their nemesis, the "I like a natural wood finish on my spokes" bunch can now add to the discussion spokes of alternating colors. The photo clearly demonstrates alternating colored spokes would be a period correct color scheme. :-)

I have seen photos of speedsters and other cars with spokes painted alternating colors. Yes, it was done. The fact is I have seen the evidence that wheel wood was occasionally stripped and varnished even in the brass era. I may be a "near purist", but I have argued both sides of that fence for a long time.
Great photo!
Thanks Charles H!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

To my logic, a purist strives for FACTORY original "correct". "Period correct" is a whole different enchilada.

Burger, you of course are absolutely right. And I usually strive for something close to what I call "era correct".
Drive carefully, and enjoy that TRUCK! W2
