Do I see Brown headlamps and E&J side lamps?

Yes, you do.
It seems that sort of mix of lamp brands on the same car was fairly common. I have noticed that on other period photos.

Also, not sure about the John Brown 19's, but the John Brown 16's come with doors that open right or left and they will often appear two rights, two lefts or one of each on a period car photo. Another mix or match of the same brand.

Back then most everybody dressed like they were going to church, even the laundry man. and now a lot of people in church dress like they have been working on the farm, including the laundry man, And when the little Woman was not cleaning the House, tending to the kids or cooking, She did the laundry and ironing, "Good Ole Days" Depends who You ask.

Standard of dress was the same. The difference was "work clothes" vs. Sunday best. Nowadays, seems most are wearing pajamas . . .

I'm not sure, but I think the "concept" of casual dress followed WWII, and "fatigues" vs. dress uniform. I remember my Dad would change into "suntans" to work around the place. Do clothes make the man ? To a degree. Personal pride in one's appearance rests in a better self image. Showing respect for one's community by dressing appropriately is a good thing IMHO, and something we've lost . . . to our detriment, it seems.
