An interesting photo showing a group of men along with an unidentified biplane and automobile. Location is possibly Mills Field, which was later renamed San Francisco International Airport. Photo dated 1919
Here is a racy looking 1911 Oldsmobile Limited, with Solarclypse headlamps. I believe this Jack McGee was the early aviator (1885 – 1918).
