The Willows in Steuben, Maine 1910
That is a wonderful scene.
Yes it is. I bet it's so quiet there you can hear your ears ring. (at least mine anyway..bad case of tinnitus). Looks like an '11?
I believe it is earlier than 1911 because it has the horizontal molding across the middle of the rear door. The rear doors on the 1911 touring were smooth without the molding.
The driver must be drunk, he can't keep it on the road.
09 or 10 is my guess based on the rear doors, lights and angle of the folded down top. Would love a closer clearer shop of what is a ideal scene

If a higher resolution image is available, it may reveal more details of the car. What a lovely scene !!
While this doesn't improve the resolution it is a bit larger.
I am always interested in photos of 1910 Ford T touring. My T is from May of 1910 and was sold in Elgin, IL. It came to Minnesota from Chicago in 1932. The oldest photos I have my T are from 1937 when the then owner, the Pure Oil Co. had it in sveral parades. I check all photos I see of 1910 Tourings that may have been taken in Illinois.
Dan, thanks for the info. Still learning, still forgetting what I learned!!
My T was equipped with John Brown model 60 side lights and model 15 head lights when new. I have a set of original lights, but use three tier E&J side lights for that special look. The T pictured has the separate Ford brass script attached to the center of the radiator as many 1910s did when new. The from fenders have the bill. Most 1909 front fenders did not have the bill. The windshield probably is not a Rands as the two halves are not the same size .
Good eyes for the details, Darel ! Thanks for that.
