Attempted to increase the contrast, not sure if it's an improvement or not:

It resembles the 1907 Illinois plate. Is that possible?

Wow! Look at how much variation there is within the group! It looks like 1910-ish, but I think I can see characteristics of 1909, 1910 and 1911.

I wonder if these were all in one rail car, or a production group?

The car on the left has two-tier side lamps and dog leg top sockets.

Car #3 has three-tier side lamps and the really wide (side to side) windshield spacer like some of the 1909 cars. And check out the top to radiator straps on cars #3 and #5. I've never seen the Y-shaped strap set-up before.

Car #2 has straight top sockets, but earlier headlamps, low radiator neck, and look at the windshield rods. They are angled near the top end.

All cars have the winged script radiator and look at the variation in top construction!

Amazing photo Herb.

Thank you!!

They all look like 1910 Model T's. Ford used several suppliers for tops, radiators, windshields, and scores of other components.

Great photo.

The plate on the car is a "pre-state."

Illinois started registering cars in 1907 and issued aluminum dashboard discs but the car owner had to provide the plate.

I believe state-issued Illinois plates started in 1911.

Looks like a little girl behind the wheel of the first car.

Same place 106 years later. The lamp post in todays photograph would be behind the third car. The buildings all remain on that side of the street.



The arched doorway dated 1892 visible between the second and third car has a glass door now. Progress all over the place.

Notice that all the radiator scripts are level, as opposed to angled as most are today.
