I dunno what a used T went for, but I bet they'd look pretty cheap to us. I bet you could buy all the cars on that lot for about the same number of dollars a good restored car of the period cost now. :-)

Nice photo Jay.

Maybe not Chicago...
I found an article from 1980 that was profiling the Dawson family. It reads as though the family did not come to Chicago until much later.

The photo was taken no earlier than 1930, as there is a 1930 Model A sedan, second from the left in the first row. It's the first full car in that row on the left. A 1929 Model A Sport Coupe sits on the street in front. The fender-mounted rear taillight makes it a 1929 and not a 1928.
Too much information for a Model T website? :-)
