This is definitely not a Ford, but an interesting photo.
I wonder if this bridge is still there and the waterfall behind it.
It is hard to tell where the car came from to land where it is sitting.
And it looks like the od mill at the top of the picture had a problem with pigeons breaking the windows!
Nice pic Herb! By looks of still horse and buggy in background, gotta be very early teens I would think? Looks like the top is laying way over to the right of picture...spare tire along rock wall...quite an accident. Wouldn't be surprised is someone didn't make it out of this one.
Looks like maybe the car rolled backwards down a hill through the fence next to the bridge. Maybe it was a parking error?
Looks like Kids threw rocks back then too. I guess it's something about the sound of breaking glass.
What is the hump beneath the rear seat? Notice the oil drip pan under the motor. Not a ford, what is it?
A lot of early cars have belly pans to keep some of the dirt out of their open transmissions and or engines.
I was thinking it may have rolled forward into the ditch, hitting nose first and flipped on over.
It could be a White steam car. They had a pressurized tank with round ends mounted at the rear.
Good eye, Richard. It's a 1910 OO White.
Might be a picture of Mrs. Cuneo's wreck during one of the Glidden tours?
The 'rubber-necks' were already around back then.... Human nature hasn't changed.
Look very carefully at the area under the front seat. Is that someone's head? If it is, I wonder why the people are just standing there instead of trying to help him?
Mark,if it is, then the "Columbus, Ohio" i.d. on the photo is incorrect. The 1905 Glidden Tour started from NYC, to Hartford, then Boston, Plymouth, N.H., Bretton Woods, and back through Concord, Worcester and Lenox, Ma. to NYC.
Thank you for posting those links, interesting history, Joan Newton Cuneo was quite the ol' gal !! Account of her accident on a bridge doesn't sound as if it was as bad as this picture looks ! (I hope that's not a head !!)
