The Car

The horseless carriage appears to be a 1902 Model B White steamer.

The Ohio Building at 420 Madison Ave. stands left of the star of this Shorpy photo. Built in 1895, it still looks quite healthy and serves mainly as an office building. It houses the City of Toledo Department of Public Utilities as well as a bank branch and a large coffee shop on the ground floor.

Is it me?

Or is the right side of building a different material?

[The presence of the scaffold would appear to have some relevance. -tterrace]
