This photo has been misidentified on eBay and elsewhere as showing a scene in Mineral Wells, TX.  Probably due to misinformed Google searching - there was an "Upham Gas Co" in Mineral Wells, but it didn't have that name until 1950.  This shot was taken on the west side of Public Square in Mount Vernon, OH.

From the Vintage Motoring Blog, this is said to be the 1908 40 horse.

The picture is said to have been taken outside the plant on Meridian Street and is said to come from American Car Company factory photos. Who knew?
 
Notice the difference in fender design.

We didn't have this car posted in picture, so I thot, why not.1908 American Underslung Roadster Gallery | | SuperCars.net

1914 American Type 666.  The photo was taken at the Ameila Island Concours in 2014.  This is one of the last cars built and was in the Crawford Auto Museum for years.  It is currently in private ownership.

The top photo is a 1913 American Underslung Scout.  This was the smallest car in American line and was about the size a Model T Ford.  The lower photo is a 1907/08 50 hp roadster.  Same as the red and green Deemer cars.
