I'll throw in a WAG - looks like an ALCO I've seen.    ray

Not too many tries at this truck, it looks like everyone conceeded to Bill and David. This looks to be a brand new Speedwell built between 1912 and 1915, as near as I can tell. The Speedwell Motor Car Company was located in Dayton, Ohio, and began building light vans on their passenger car chassis in 1907. By 1912 they began building 2 and 3 ton trucks. By 1913 they had a 6 ton model in the lineup. Speedwell filed bankruptcy in 1915 after it's financier died and the Dayton factory was flooded, and no more vehicles were produced. Thanks to Jack Amaral for providing the 2 photos below featuring a proud Speedwell owner and his driver.
