Looks like a "pride of ownership" type photo of a new car. Very nice.

Also, either that's a very short man, or a kid with a mustache!

Should have bought a lawnmower too...

Consummate Odd Couple...very tall, stern looking lady who rules the roost! And a short husband saying "yes ma'am". :-)

Nice looking touring...'20 maybe?

That's his house on the right and hers on the left.

As I am over 6 ft, I barely fit in a model T. Looking at this picture I now see who the drivers seat, pedals, etc. were laid out for!

Tim, I concur. Demountables probably means self starter - 1920 or '21. Tom, it's a two-man top, center bows are kinda hidden in the photo. Wrap around at the back is like a one-man though.

Oops ! Looked again - it doesn't wrap around. Two- man top.

That's a boy, and not a mustache. Notice the shadow from the bill on his hat. He probably has an under bite and that is the shadow of his upper lip. You can see the gap between his nose and the shadow. Too low for a mustache. It is difficult to realize that in those days the children dressed up, especially when taking a picture. There is a resemblance between the woman and the boy. She is either his mother or his grandmother.

I'm with Lew on this one. That's about the size guy that T Models were made for. In spite of how he looks in photographs, I've always thought that Henry Ford must've been about 5' 4". :-)

That house reminds me of the old farmhouse i was raised in.The roof had been removed from the front porch and there were 3 to 4" lizards on it.At the time they were called Blue Tailed Swifts and when we could hit them a .22 worked well.I think they should fix the roof! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

If that's a boy, he's got mighty saggy jowls.

I think the porch item is a Dietz style kerosene lamp.

The T seems to have visor style lenses in the headlamps.

If that a woman's head to the right of the girl in the back seat in the last picture?

Speculating. First photo, given uneven ground, the "man/boy" could be all of five feet tall, but he's probably a little shorter. The lady is placed a little above him, we can see her feet. She is very close to six feet tall judging both from the proportions of the car. I'm leaning toward the male figure being mature, his jaw line suggests maturity, his face isn't typically as round as those of children and adolescents, he appears to have a bit of a paunch, his hand assumes the pose of a seasoned working man, and his clothing isn't typical of what youngsters wore in the period.

Photo #2 illustrates the kind of suit a lad would wear. I see a little girl and her dolly in the car, which has a rusted out runningboard.

It's frightening what being under the thumb can do to your height! He used to be as tall as his wife.

The first photo, is such a nice shiny car! But look at the right side headlamp. Lens and rim are missing.
