I see a 4th person

There appears to be a man walking down the sidewalk. You can spot him (partially) just behind the truck's cab.

How many people can you find?

To the far right is a man sitting on a bench. He appears to be talking to a young lady standing in front of him while she is looking at the ground. And just above the truck, a young girl at the window. Playing or reading perhaps.

White Motors truck

That radiator shape is unmistakable. Lots of lovely period details here, from the furled side curtains to the clamped on chain-brackets in the rear spokes and the single oil-fired tail lamp. And just to prove that fleet drivers never change, the rear fender has mysteriously found itself bent.

White truck

Looks like a circa 1920 White truck. Pictured is a restored truck from that era.
