Herb,

Nice find! That is one weird photograph.
Why is she facing away?
The top half of a generator, and on the LH side and no headlights, not even any forks?
The speedometer is driven from the left wheel?
Horn on the left?
The trunk cutoff and a box bolted on? The body would need to be closed under the seat.
All the bolts running through the fellows horizontalaly?

Any history on the photo?

Looks like it was taken in Rob's neighborhood.

Bruce,

If you look at the post mark it appears to be reversed - the picture has been flipped over somewhere in the reproduction. Is the lady not facing straight forward - the ties on her bonnet would indicate that.

I'm not sure that the photo has been reversed. You can read the cancel on it as August.

If you flip the picture it rectifies many of the discrepancies & places the stamp & post mark in the correct corner on the other side where it normally is found - the ink has bled through the photograph at some time. The photo was probably not meant to be a post card.

In any case it is an interesting picture of a car that has seen some service.

Thanks Jack.
I don't know how to do that.
