This period photo appeared on another website as a example of touring in the 1920's.  It appears to be s Cole Eight touring parked in front of the Hotel Coarse Gold.

Thanks for sharing and I have not seen that picture before.  That is a 1919-1921 Cole Aero 8 Tourster.  1922 had side mounted spares and then for 1923 they went to big barrel headlights.  Here is a nice picture of 1922 Cole Aero 8 with the side mounted tires.  Otherwise very similar wo the picture you shared.

Kevin,

Thanks to your bringing Coles to our attention I was able to recognize this one as a Cole.   Every little bit of automotive history education helps.
