Lovely setting. The T touring is at a jaunty angle. The truck full of milk cans may not be Ford. The WEE Blew INN/service station and competition across the street are delightful.
Here is a token from there currently on EBay: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Port-Crane-NY-Wee-Blew-Inn-Good-For-25-Token- /381996150521
How do you find them?

This photo was taken not too many years after the Chenango Canal was abandoned and filled in. The street pictured was where the canal ran through town- hence the name "Port" Crane.

One of the things that stands out in these early photos is all the nice mature trees close to the road not hacked to pieces on account of the power lines.
