Looks like most of them, if not all, were swiped from Shorpy's.

I don't care where they came from They're still neat pictures.
This guy John McDonald in Nova Scotia has over 10,000 pics on his website, including a model T section.

RE: Shorpy

Shorpy is a blog that features photographs in the public domain. Shorpy's aim appears to be making money by enticing people to order "fine art" prints of those featured on its website.

A majority if not all of the pictures I have seen on the MTFCA forum via Shorpy come from the Library of Congress photo collection (particularly the National Photo Company of Washington DC glass negative collection) which may be accessed directly online free of charge.

Also, in many instances you can download high resolution files of the photographs directly from the Library of Congress collection and print them yourself at home or by taking the file to a printer of your choice instead of paying Shorpy. Example: click on the link below. Once it opens, click on the image and you will be able to access the high resolution files of the photograph.
