It is a early and new looking T, either a 1909 or 1910.
The dirt street had concrete crosswalks and a concrete place to stand while waiting for the streetcar. I don't recall ever seeing that before.
It might be a relatively new Ford but It looks like the rear right fender already had a run in with something.
An interesting picture documenting the early transition from horses to automobiles. In 5 years time, the ratio of horses to automobiles will be quite different.
Notice on the car that the straps for the top saddles are NOT rolled.
I was noticing how nice the top looks on the car. No wrinkles there!
(Wonder if the installer got a reprimand for taking too long?)
US flag displayed wrong.
Looks like someone lined up models on that cement telephone pole base in the shape of an S maybe?
There were no official rules about displaying the flag until the National Flag Code came into effect in 1923.
The 3 story building, on the left side of Main Street, at the corner there I believe is the Sodus Hotel and it is still there and in the process of being remodeled.
It might be the building farther down in the newer photo.
What a difference a “N” direction marker, that I missed earlier, makes on a photo.
In this view we’re looking east with the buildings on the north side of Main Street, where Maple Avenue tees off of Main Street.
I thought the earlier view was looking west where Belden Aveue joined Main Street. Certainly more of the old buildings, or at least their foundations are still in place on the north side of the street.
My birthplace, the old Sodus Hospital, would have been in the upper right hand southeast side just beyond that white clapboard building with the flags out front.
