There's something that is lacking in our modern society, a business with their street number in plain view (multiple times) to be seen.

Great picture. The store owner didn't waste any time on window displays.

Great photo, good view of the pickup box and irons for the box.

I suspect it is a 1915 to early 1916 car with the radiator painted black and if it originally had brass trim on the lamps those were painted black also. Of course if the horn button had been removed the 1915 to 1916 model year.

Rationale: The horn button is not visible. If it was there it sticks up above the column and I believe it would be visible in that photo. Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/doc15.htm

OCT 16, 1915 Acc. 575, Box 19, Ford Archives
Electric horns specified for all 1916 cars. Notes that 10,000 electric horns were used in 1915 but the wording is such that there may have been more.



NOV 15, 1915 Acc. 78, Box 1, Letter, Ford Archives
All steering assemblies being shipped with horn button and wiring.

And if the headlamp doors were painted steel from the factory then between very late 1915 and early 1916 Model. Ref same page where it says:

JUN 19 Acc. 575, Box 19, Ford Archives
Headlight door. Change from brass to black steel specified.

Respectfully submitted,
