Neat photo, May 5, 1914.
The first two were shipped with a Prest-O-Lite tank.

It's a photo of a happy occasion. As Kenneth says the first two roadsters have Prest-O-Lite tanks and the rest have acetylene generators.
It took a while to read "FORDS DELIVERED MAY 5 1914 BY SMITH HARDWARE CO.
Does this mean the hardware store is the Ford dealer?
When did I do that?

According to Motor World volume 31, page 31 (1912):

"The Smith Hardware Co., Pine City, Minn., has entered the automobile selling field; it has secured a Ford Agency."
