I haven't researched this one but it looks like one of the Clegg-designed 12hp models which ran from about 1912 through to after WW1 - this one looks to be about 1914.

At least in 1913 the 12 hp was the smaller of Rovers two models:

But looking at the body I think it's immediately post-WWI.
It wasn't until 1924 when the 12 hp grew up and became 14. They probably needed a bit larger engine,as the Jack Sangster designed unorthodox eight had joined the range.
