Like texases says, early teens vintage. Appears to have gas cowl lights, but electric headlights, so it would be no older than 1912. It looks like a big solid middle/upper middle class car, not a Model T or a cyclecar etc. The fenders and cowl seem familiar somehow, maybe something like a ~1914 Buick.

Also, if you post it
Someone will know the year, make, and model - some real experts are there, with knowledge far more than my own.

In the first photo, the bear is making friends with a 1949-51 Ford, there were minor differences in grille and bumpers from year-to-year, perhaps someone will come along and tell you the exact year.
The dark car in the second pic appears to be a Chevy of the same vintage but it could be a Pontiac or Olds.
The white car on the left in the parking lot photo is a 1957 Chevrolet, next to it is a two-tone 1956 Buick and over her shoulder you can see a '52-'53 Ford.

My bad, I typed '56 Buick but that's definitely a '55, great year for Buick Division.

Hello! I'm trying to identify the car in these photos here, here and here It may be a Bugatti, but I'm not sure. I found the snapshot in the Boston area some years ago. On the back is written in pencil "Here is my anvil car I told you about." Any help with year, make and model would be greatly appreciated!

Not sure, except that it's probably not a Bugatti, wrong radiator shell.
Edit - pretty sure it's an "Amilcar":
More info here.

Looks much too brutish for a Bugatti.
I'm going to take a wild guess on this and call it a late 1920s era Amilcar.
