The lights are under the seat to protect the lenses from flying rocks while driving in heavy traffic on dirt roads.

My Father said my Grand father would remove the head  lights driving his International during the day. (South Dakota  dirt roads)

Common arrangement to have 12 spokes on the rear and 10 spokes on the front in that era.

Does that  type of door handle suggest General Motors, or were they common?

 

Someone elsewhere suggested it was an  English "STAR", Built in Wolverhampton, circa 1908, but I thought the radiator badging said not.
