1915. This scotches the superstition that glass plate = high quality. :-)

Early 15, bulb horn, early E&J sidelamps.

Great photo almost haunting. Love it.

Any ideas what the star on the side of the car is?

Love the shot and the negative. For anyone who's interested:

The reason for the lighter color on the edges of this "print" is that the silver in the negative migrates out of the gelatin when exposed to sulfurous air over time. This fine form of silver goes through the gelatin and onto the surface, usually on the edges first. If you saw the actual negative on a piece of black cloth or paper you could see this. The deposit is actually silvery colored and is called "silvering out." This deposit produces higher 'non image' density which holds back the light when you make it into a positive.

Sorry, my photo conservation geek came out ....

Mark, I always appreciate your "photo geek" input. Invariably instructive ! Aside from the deterioration, the image seems to me to be very good quality. What treasures these photos are. Thank you for posting, Jay.

Masonic Eastern Star??
Notice the white dress the driver is wearing.

Just a WAG.
