Ready to ride…

This young child seems ready to go. The caption is what makes it, I think. “Papa couldn’t come, but he sent me to take you to ride”. The car is an unknown chain-drive, but much smaller than most that employed that method of power to the rear wheels. Does anyone know what it is?

Well-used Locomobile

This photo shows a 1909 or 1910 Locomobile Model L or 30, which was their “smaller” offering. It used a 4-cylinder T-Head engine and shaft drive on a 120″ wheelbase. This photo was taken in 1917 after the rear seat had been removed to carry more people.
