Brass Era Car ID?

Recommended Posts

Here's a nice quest - any ideas what the cars are? I was able to blow up the image for the Buick in the background.  From a post card dated 1909.

I wonder who the dignitaries in the first car are too. I notice military uniforms.

The man with the skimmer hat in the right rear passenger seat looks like Teddy Roosevelt.

I tried to make it a bit clearer - you may be correct.   See if I'm a bit crazy here....

 

Left to right:

1) William Taft ?(former President)

2) Jacob Dickinson? (Secretary of War under Taft) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_M._Dickinson  (Luke Edward Wright seemed to only have a much longer mustache). 

3) Theodore Roosevelt?

4) ? Jon Hay? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hay
