Interesting that they took care to cover the headlamps.

Would the high filler neck on the radiator make this a 1910?

This T may have later parts on it. The radiator neck should be the short one. The windshield may be the 1912 style. The front wheels may be 30 by 3 1/2. The steering wheel appears to be larger than one for a 1910.

While my eye isn't always right? I think the front wheels and tires are 30X3 (standard USA front). I also "think" the hubs are 5 1/2 inch early style. I cannot tell, but suspect the rear hubs may be the tapered axle type? (Was that combination even made?)
The radiator does clearly have the later taller neck.
The crank handle looks like it could be brass plated?? The brake handle? Not so much, but you never know. The angle of the sunlight could be just off for it to shine with its flatter surfaces. While the round horn tube and crank handle seem to reflect brightly.
I never have sorted out half the fender changes, so all those bill/no bill fenders still lose me about half the time. These have bills.
Interesting that the headlamps are covered, and there is no generator on the driver's running board. Tank under the rear seat? Or on other side? Or temporarily removed? (Could even have been after-market self generating lamps? Although I think I have only ever seen one T with them?)
No top. Lamps and top may have still been optional?
There are quite a few odd spots on the picture. Makes it difficult to tell. But I think (I zoomed in quite close) that the body has the "two-bolt" bracket near the front. I was thinking that change was made somewhere in 1910?
Wonderful photo!
Thank you all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I find the dating of the car details fascinating. So often they refute factory records, and the accepted current norms . . . which makes the study of the Model T endlessly fascinating for us "nerds" who find it, well . . . endlessly fascinating !

This picture ? Maybe taken on the occasion of a meeting of the "Goofy Bonnet Society" ?? I'm pretty sure the headgear on those ladies was not what they would wear normally !

The early teens was the golden age for goofy woman's hats, so this was probably their Sunday's finest :-)

Additional information on the photo is that it is the A.J. Edward family of Spivey Kansas.
