Two different single cylinder cylinders

The car on the left if definitely a single-cylinder Curved-Dash Oldsmobile with the steering tiller in the raised position for easy exit/enter; and looks like it has a bicycle bell on the tiller in lieu of a horn - the car on the right is a Model A Cadillac or Model A Ford (they were virtually identical, and no, I'm not talking about the Ford Model A of 1928-31)

Curved-Dash Oldsmobile?

Is that a curved-dash Oldsmobile under the "El" in the El Belmont sign?

The steering tiller can be seen. Does a car like that "steer", or does it "answer the helm" ?

Still standing

as well as the building beyond.
