A very interesting photograph. I was/am astounded to see the National cash register (well, any cash register) on the push cart as they are not a lightweight item. In a previous life I was a mechanical cash register technician. That one appears to be a 100 Class machine.
I wonder what the third car back is? Not a Rolls Royce. I don't think it is a McFarlan. My guess would be a Moon, they used that style radiator for about two years ('26/'27 I think, I know, I should go look it up). Rollin is another albeit rare possibility. Maybe a better fit with the earlier ford and Chevrolet between it and the carts. Rollin used that style around '21/'22 if I recall correctly.
Anybody else with speculations (or better yet, a definitive idea) what that car is?
And so many interesting buildings and businesses.
Another wonderful photo!

Wayne, Roamer comes to my mind. Just a guess.
I knew there was another "R" I couldn't think of! Thanks Richard E.
The Model T in the foreground on the left seems to have a custom hood with angled louvers and a cap that covers the top of the rad.
Erik, Thanks. I never knew.
An authentic newsboy cap.
They had hebrews back then ??? !
Dave, I think those fenders may be aftermarket too. There was another posting awhile back that had a T equipped the same way. Dave
Yes. the YMHA building at 400 11th Street NW is gone and so are the rest of the buildings except for the "Printing & Books" one in the very left corner of the old photo. That building is in the left corner of the "today" view.
It is still a very busy place.
