I believe the young girl would have been my Aunt Hope (Dunton). I am Daniel's grand-daughter. I don't know who the gentleman in the back is. Presumably, the woman to the left of Hope was her mother Anne Dunton. My father, Austin is perhaps the blurred figure behind the windshield. Fascinating!

The car is indeed a 1911 EMF, but EMF was made in Walkerville (Windsor), ON and in Detroit. The car that was made in Orillia was the Everitt / Tudhope. Everitt was the E in EMF, but he and Metzger left EMF and started Everitt. The Tudhopes of Orillia made a deal to assemble Everitts in Canada and marketed them first under the Everitt name, and then as Tudhopes.

Wonderful photo.
