What's that in the back seat? A case for some kind of stringed instrument?

That's his "Tommy Gun" case, He's going to collect from those who haven't made their payments on their car this month. :-)

I believe that is the famous fiddle player Eck Robertson with his new Ford. As the story goes, he won a huge fiddle contest, got on the train and went to New York and recorded several sides for (I think) Bluebird records or may Victor and had one of the first big selling Hillbilly records. I don't have time to look it up and make sure that is accurate but that picture floats around the fiddle sites occasionally.

I notice that the car wheels have natural finish spokes. Somehow I always thought new cars all came with black spokes. Perhaps a dealer option since the car appears new?

I Googled Eck Robertson and found some recordings of his music on YouTube. Stan is correct when he wrote about him being the first country music player recorded. He was recorded in 1922 and quite the fiddle player! One of the tags on the recording of "Arkansas Traveler" goes into great detail of his past.

Henry: Yes, 21" demountables with natural wood spokes were available as an option from 1925.
