Is that first car a Saxon?

Sure looks like one.

That was my first thought also. I think it is a Saxon. Hard to say for sure, the depth of field in the photo makes judging size a bit difficult. Now if those pedestrians would hurry up and get out of the way? We could get a better look at the car.

Look like it to me, too. 8 hood louvers.Touches a nerve, too. At one time I had almost enough parts to build three pretty complete chassis, but I parted with the stuff except for one real nice engine. A few years ago,scrappers raided the friends farm where I had it stored.I think I have One nice Mayer carburetor left.

In Kansas?...Hmmmm

There is a guy standing - far left and just above the kid with the bike - he's the only guy in bib overalls.....

He looks suspiciously like Steve Jelf's grand-father :-)

No grandfather in Pratt, but my uncle Ozzo Jelf (1899-1994) lived there. But that was later. I think in 1915 he was still down in Chautauqua County.

This shot was taken before the streets were bricked. Unfortunately a few years ago the bricks laid 90 to 100 years ago were taken up and replaced by concrete.
