Common problem with flat tires and "clincher tires" is low air pressure. I see the guy is using a "twin cylinder pump". There was a "triple cylinder pump" that made it much easier to reach 55 to 60 psi.
Those were the days :)

Patch the inner tube and pump it up with some air.

Are those spokes metal or wood?

Wooden spokes. And one important issue with low air pressure is the tube valve stem can be ripped out by low tire pressure.....

If you hang around this place long enough, you can open a photo and recognize the photographer and the vehicle in the photograph. 😊
The road looks deep with dust, but the trees don't look fully leafed out. A dry spring?

Side lamp at door level looks like a lantern?
Kenn on 30th April 2018 @ 5:24pm
yes, the early Model T's had carbide lanterns (like mining lanterns). This one looks like it's had an electric spotlight added. Experts (Dale?) can tell the date by the lamp configuration.

Arthur, in 1919 Ford offered a starter, battery and electric lights as an "option" and then in 1920 this was a "standard" package.
The roadster above could have been a 1919 and was a "turtle back". It was removable by unbolting 4 bolts and then installing the pick-up box.
The spot light was available prior to 1919 as some of Ford's competitors had the electrical feature going back to 1912 with Cadillac and REO in 1913. Dodge, Willys, Chevrolet followed from 1915 to 1918. Milburn was one of the early electric spot light makers.

Three people counting the photographer, wonder where the third person rode, very little space in the front seat of a T or an A,

Seating in the roadster is only slightly more generous than a modern airline seat. Definitely only two thin people in the front seat.
