Another old beast

Appears to be 1912-14 IMO...looks like maybe electric headlights, interesting wheels...the painted radiator shell and lack of hood louvers must be a clue.

Are you sure it's a Hudson? I've never seen a 6-54 with running board tool boxes, kerosene sidelamps, outside door handles or a bulb horn. This car also appears to be left-hand drive (unless the negative was reversed). I believe Hudson was RHD until 1914.

Could this be a Stoddard-Dayton or Stoddard-Knight?

It is thought to be a Hudson because of white triangle on the grill shell. Here is picture of a Hudson model 54.

I googled 1912 Stoddard-Dayton, and a couple images come up that very closely resemble the car I posted.

Yes, I agree it is more likely to be a Stoddard-Dayton. It looked a lot like the 1913 Hudson pictured in the Standard Catalog but I missed the toolboxes on the runningboards and notice now that the cowl is a little different. Interesting that the Stoddard-Dayton doesn't appear to have hood louvres - maybe it has a flywheel fan?
