The first one is an International. Perhaps a M-W 1910.
When did I do that?

The AACA "Antique Automobile" issue for March/April 1963 is the "special high wheel issue". Pages 78 to 83 contain a chart and a list of 77 (SEVENTY SEVEN! ) companies known to have built and sold high wheel automobiles during the years 1906 to 1912 (ordered sort-of earlier to later). It is NOT a complete list!

I agree with Rich E about the first one being an IHC. Likely a late one from what little of the hood shows. It very well could be a MW model, first produced in late 1912 as a'13 model. All earlier IHCs were air cooled.

The other two may be difficult to identify. The second photo has a few unusual characteristics, and may be by Charles Duryea. The third one I could rattle off several names it is not, a few names I am fairly sure it isn't but could possibly be an obscure model, leaving more than fifty other possibilities.

Is that a way of tenderizing the meat ??

Tenderizing meat, Funny Felloe!
Yes, obscure model or obscure maker. The car in the second photo looks water-cooled. That would be more rare I think.
The third car has a rather thick dash out front. I couldn't find one like that. Schacht cars had a brass radiator there but that is not.
Highwheelers do all have similar features. Black, Holsman, Success and so many others made various models.
I'll keep searching as time permits.

When did I do that?
