Without knowing the size (you didn't include it) it obviously is not a stereoscope photo.
The bare-headed man's hat is hanging in the bush. I thought it was a ladies hat but I think…"
"What is your purpose in finding out about this car, or the Barney Oldfield picture? Just curious or what?
I don't think it's Adolph Sutro, wrong style and color beard. Not only that he died in 1898, and the car pictured is from…"
