Behind tree is a 1951-52 Buick (Roadmaster?), and in foreground at right is a 1949-50 De Soto. At far left is a 1956 Pontiac.

The De Soto looks to be a Deluxe model S-14 of 1950. I risk being wrong in guessing that the Deluxe series had slightly less trim than the Custom series, as is evident in the lack of chrome mouldings behind the front wheel openings. The only way from this angle to tell a 49 from a 50 would be to look for a wide chrome moulding below the A-pillar vent window. Otherwise, the code for the 1949 Custom and Deluxe models is S-13.

This can only be 1949-50, if you wish to name it in the most basic manner.

I think one can see that extra chrome under the vent window, so I'd go for a 1950 DeLuxe [S-14-1].
