I would like to know what the approximate date was when this image was taken. I was hoping someone that may be familiar with early cars could provide a ballpark date for the picture.
Thanks,
Richard

Taking a shot as it looks like those are wooden wheels, 1917-1919ish

Definitely some early stuff. 1920 is not a bad guess. One potential problem is that Ford sold a hell of a lot of Model T's and they stayed a near constant from 1909 to 1927. Only an early Ford guru can tell them apart.

If I was a betting man, which I am, I would say, pre-1920...

Early T's had brass radiator shells and I think, brass cowl lights. They changed over to all black (I think( in the mid-teens. I don't see any brass "stuff" in the pic so I would guess late teens on into the '20's somewhere.

Do you see any Model T's in the picture?
My monitor is so crappy I can't tell for sure but it doesn't look like there is any to me.

Thanks for all of the replies guys, I'm surprised at how many of you are taking a shot at the question.

Dean, don't blame your monitor as the resolution of the image is not all that good.:)

That is the Street Rod Nationals in Peoria, Illinois circa 1970. I can tell by all the vintage tin. ;)
Actually if it were the Nationals, people would be going nuts for all the virgin tin.

Besides the cars there are 4 other clues that I have no knowledge of but maybe someone does.
This gas pump which looks like the glass ones.

This barber pole looks about 4 feet tall

And the crème de la crème of exactly within a year this is taken is the womens hats. we all know going back to cave man days no woman would wear last years fashion. The one on the right I've seen before but cant find a picture. any fashionistas in any members' house I bet can peg it.

My first guess since they are all standing in a line facing the same way is a depression era food line. so 1933ish. however it is 1915

In my opinion, that looks pretty much like anything in the early 20s at the very first glance. The wooden tyres further supports this notion but at some places, this could very well be anything within anytime in the late teens too depending on the evolution in certain districts.
