Pretty looking thing isn't it?

I wonder if that's a Tarrant body or one delivered by them?

Headlights must've been an option, like plating the radiator shell, an odd combination of economy and dress up.

Can't help but think the patients must have been short or they would have deathly cold feet!

Where did you find the picture?

I see the fellow on the porch must have started his Model T with the spark advanced instead of retarded.

Great pictures of the ambulances

I suspect the stretcher goes in next to the driver so the patient's feet are near the dashboard. Doctor/nurse would be behind the driver.

They put the sign out and chalk the wheels before the patient was transported to the emergency room.

Must not have been that big of a hurry.

Steve maybe the guy was putting the sign out and the ambulance hit him and they felt obligated to carry him inside! :-)

That would be the lift off rear door leaning on the front of the car.

I don't see how these would have been long enough to put a person in the back and close the door. WWI ambulances are much longer and extend out the back much further. Did they go down the road with the persons legs sticking out the back end? Did they slide the patient's head up under the front seat?

Oh, I didn't see Chris Landry's comment. That makes sense--especially after looking at the fist photo again. The attendant is setting farther forward than the driver.
