Any thoughts on who made this car?

It is very similar to early 1890s Benz cars, but I cannot find a match.

Any help is appreciated.

    I think mustang is correct. Looks like that 1899 Locomobile Stanhope.

    Scott ... is this the entire image or a crop? Tintype, or ...? Looks interesting. .: Rob

    Thanks rob-- it has been cropped. I didn't want the entire image to detract from attention to the car.

    I will post the entire image at some point.

    Rob-- here is the full view of the car in the studio.

    It has a Niagara Falls backdrop. It looks like the owner drove it right into the studio!

    This is an awecome picture with the backdrop. I've never seen anything like it - a full sized car in studio ... wow! Obviously the gentleman loved his auto to go through the effort to make this tintype ... great find! - Rob

    Thanks rob-- I thought the same.

    I have seen the "prop" cars before in images, but this (to me) appears to be his actual car. It was probably new at the time (1899) and he wanted to show it off. 19th century automobile images are an unusual find.

    Looking through some of my automobile books, it could be a 1900 Mobile Steamer or like other members already posted a 1898-99 Locomobile.
