OT-Brass Car ID

Post by avahon » Wed Feb 06, 2019 11:33 am

This photo was taken near Baltic, SD at the 50th wedding anniversary of my great great grandfather's brother. Any thoughts on the make of the car that is sideways in the background? Leather license plate visible on a rear facing car indicates pre-1913 in South Dakota.
Thanks!!

Can’t help with the car identification .....

But I believe the figure in the lower left
is either a Ghost or someone who really
stood out in a crowd ..... :shock:

The car in the background is a Maxwell (possibly 1910) and the car with the rear facing the camera is a Model T (possibly 1910).

Hood looks like it might be a Packard.

surprising number of 2 horsepower high wheelers.

I agree. Very nice barn, looks new. What a great picture, the depth of field is amazing. Had to be a small aperture lens setting for that and one heckuva good quality lens also. And they all had to SIT STILL for a bit! Gotta love those two honking big chairs they had to drag out of the house for this. Bet they weighed a ton! Thanks for posting Brass Car!

Very Off Topic-But here is another great barn picture. This is my great great grandfather Peder Riswold's farm (he is the one in the foreground). This farm was located about a half a mile from the farm in the previous photo.
