If someone could identify these old vehicles like the year built would be helpful.

I am trying to determine when this postcard was made. Perhaps if someone can tell the approximate year some of the
old cars were built, that could help in determining its age. Perhaps mid to late 1930's postcard but I am not sure.
Thank you! BC

    I don't see anything newer than ~ 1930.

    The tall sedan parked perpendicular to the main street in the pic, just beyond the two men on the sidewalk (one in a maritime looking hat), looks like a later run Model T, probably 1925 or so. The car parked nearest the men, facing the camera, might be the newest identifiable car, from around 1930, but it is hard to ID, other than not being a Ford or fancy car, maybe a Chevy or a medium priced car. AACA people will know more.

    They probably weren't any worse than many modern cars cuz they had skinny tires, decent weight distribution and manual shifts.

    I used to drive a Morgan in NYC--that's about the equivalent of a Model T. :p
