Brought his ladder so they could elope!
I think he's "recruited" her to help on their new honeymoon home (in the background)...
What kind of side lamps are those?
Possibly Adlake side lamps. They can fit the T brackets nicely. That's a nice contrasting stripe on the door and rear molding. It would be fun to see what color the car is.
They look a lot like railroad lamps. Adlake or Dressel?
These were often used on trucks in the late teens. This shows the different mountings and the one at right says Adlake in the top.
