Haven't seen a wheel chair like that since great Grandma passed!
That fellow in the light suit must be a quick change artist because in the second photo he is dressed as a woman and the fellow cranking the Model T must be camera shy.
If they are planning to race down main street my money I on the wheel chair.
Minnesota license plate; "A" for passenger car weighing less than one ton.
I wonder why the brass-style radiator was painted black (or some dark color).
I don't think they were "black bumper Mennonites" since the Weaverland Old Order Mennonite Conference didn't start using cars until 1927, but the pictured family may instead have been interested in keeping their Ford up to date - brass radiators were considered old fashioned by 1914-16 and Ford was a couple of years after most other brands with the change to a painted radiator shell.
Hard to tell, but that car is either a 1913 or 1914.
Based on the license plate, the photo was taken no earlier than 1921 (first year for Minnesota A and B plates) so the car has been around for a while and may be the reason for painting the brass to update the car.
Based on the appearance of the plate, I'm leaning toward 1922 (black over pale yellow) or 1925 was (black over silver).
The following years also had dark over a light color, but I would think the background of the plate would be a little darker in the photo:
1921 black over light blue
1923 brown over light green
1928 black over light taupe
The headlights look electric to me. Also one cowl light looks round. Electric also?
If it's that late, then maybe it's just natural corrosion on the unpolished headlamps and radiator?

Notice the sign in the window? What is that for?
Looks like a Kiwanis banner.
Note the telephone sign - hard to see the real thing but the reflection in the window shows up better.
In quite a number of these older shots the plate is on the cowl. What did the mounting bracket look like?
This may have been the method for attaching those plates. I assume owners without a proper bracket and not wanting to block the radiator did whatever they felt like.
In Minnesota, it was common to screw the license plate onto the wood firewall or windshield filler board on 1914 and earlier Model T Fords as well as other cars of that era.
The car in the photo is a 1913 or 1914 Ford.
Note folding bench on left side of picture. I have one my grand dad used when camping in the early 20's. I posted plans for it a couple years back.
