Looks like a 1916 with aftermarket windshield and wheels.
He must not have seen the "Park No Cars Here" sign!

Grapes of Wrath
I am certain that there is a kitchen sink in there somewhere, perhaps even a claw foot tub!
That is a women driving the car. 1920 is too early for "Grapes of Wrath" which depicts the dust bowl days on the mid 1930s. For a T 4 years old,. it certainly has had a hard life.
What comes to mind is "the straw that broke the Model T's frame".
I had a frame that was bent nearly that badly. It had been in a friend's speedster. We tried for days to get the hood, body, and radiator to line up even tolerably. He finally decided to toss the frame and got a good one to put into the car.
It was an old speedster frame. so I saved it. One day (about seven years ago), I was cleaning up some of my junk, got a bee up my bonnet, and spent a couple hours straightening it. I still haven't used it, but it is now a good old speedster frame waiting for me to get a couple other projects done first. I actually have a project pile built around it for a specific planned speedster.
Amazing what some of our cars went through to survive for us to enjoy!
Another "Thank you Jay!" great photo.
