Hi,

Looks like a Silver Ghost although the bonnet seems a bit short?

Regards

I don't think this is a Rolls-Royce at all. The forward mounting of the radiator, noticeably ahead of the centre line of the front axle, is most unlike their pre 1930s design cues.

Bearing in mind the Triumph TR4, the shape of the wheels and the sign in the bottom RH corner of the pcture, I think this is a 1907 30hp Standard.

I don't think it is an early Standard either because the raised section of the bonnet in the pics of the surviving Standard didn't do back to the screen. This car has unusual wheels which I think are called captain (?) wheels which have a removeable side setion to enable a tyre to be replaced.

The only surviving Standard from this era is the 1907 30hp car SMC 1 and from the pics I have seen of it it has never had this style of wheel.

What other make of car would be shown in the window of a Standard retailer? Apart from a Triumph, there is the possibility of this car being a Maudslay, a 1910 version in the Coventry museum of transport having similar wheels. The radiator shape could fit, and the Standard Motor Company was founded by Reginald W Maudslay.

1909 Albion A6 'Roi des belges' as here...

Looks to be the exact car (in the Heratige Motor Centre, Gaydon).

Same car as here /vehicle_94741-Albion-A6-1909.html

The connection is that in 1961 Standard-Triumph was bought by Leyland Motors, previously in 1951 Leyland had aquired Albion Motors which by then was purely a truck manufacturer.
