Lots of interesting things to study in that photo. Judging by the satellite image, the building on the corner no longer stands. It must have been situated on the southeast corner of Main St. and Church Rd. The house in the background may today be the second house on Main south of the intersection of Church Rd.

More of the town can be seen here:

The first photo also shows the building on the corner taken from what must be further north on Main looking south toward Church Rd. It would seem those buildings also no longer stand. Interesting to note the road drops off along where those three wood frame buildings are situated. There is a pretty good sized creek shown on the satellite image behind where the photographer was likely standing.

Looks like a 1916. Notice the side window.

Rear fenders should all be the same general shape for 1915 - 16. The 1915 mounting bracket has three carriage bolts that go through the mounting iron to secure the fender to the iron. For 1916 model year Ford saved money by reducing the number of fasteners to two and redesigning the bracket to be cheaper and simpler to make.

The narrower / rounded top "black era" rear fenders came in 1917. You often see these on restored 1915 / 16 Model T's because most of those "restored" cars started life as later cars.

The car in the photo looks like a 1916 couplet to me.

I can't see the cap bill on the front fenders could they be left over 14s?
