Just to add to the identification of the vehicles in this photo. The two facing forward but not mentioned in the description, are - a Jowett Bradford (essentially a van with windows), it was made at Eccleshill in Bradford, and - I believe, had a two-stroke engine. The car on the extreme left, is a Sunbeam Talbot. I seem to recall that in its day, this car was hailed as the first production saloon to boast a top-speed of 100mph. They are now considered a Classic.

Behind the mighty Sunbeam is a Rover, one of either a 60, 75 90 or 95 and in the foreground is an Austin A40.... I used to own a Rover 60
