Emergency brake for the back seat driver! Just my UN-educated guess

Is it a block of wood held by a leather strap? Maybe a wheel chock?

No outside lever as far as I can see on the fairly new 1914 Touring - looks like a camera bag hanging from the front body iron for the top?

Actually, if you look very closely, it looks like a leather pouch hanging from a bracket. You can see where the top of the pouch comes over. - Matt

From the many times I've accidentally photographed my own camera case, I think it's likely a case for one of the larger folding Kodak cameras.

Kinda looks like a camera case.

1914 Eastman Kodak camera case.

An early attempt at a go pro while driving.

You guys are all wrong. It's quite obvious that it is a pouch for holding a can of MMO...

How's about the low number license plate ?

If you look real close you can see an external tire patch at about 2:00 on the front driver's tire.

One on the rear as well.

I agree with Roger. It's a camera. First thing I thought of when I looked. Nice to see a photographic confirmation of what the top boot looks like with the "little flap". Paid extra to have that put on my '13s new boot. Glad I did.

It is a Canadian Model T. Note the hinges on the front door. It has a 1914 license plate . Number 4.

Definitely a camera. Have one almost identical but a little smaller.
Wonder why he didn't have it in the car. Not a good way to haul a camera around.

The guy taking the picture hung it there while he's taking the picture.

My guess, No camera in the bag, The person taking the picture hung the bag on the car while taking the picture, rather than lay it on the ground.

Side lights have been removed & headlights appear to have been electrified.

There is also a tire patch on the right-rear tire. Hope he made it home!

Not a patch but a "boot" to help out a compromised tire casing. There's also one on the left front, and the tires are mis-matched. He's running a Firestone "non-skid" on the right front.
