All - apologies as this does stray in to my 'Yardley Family History' in topic but . . . I never met my paternal grandfather as he sadly passed away in the early '60's. I have however always had this photo and always wondered: a) where is it? b) what is the car they are in? I'm a bit of a petrolhead but vintage cars are not my speciality. I think it was taken around 1930. I know they lived somewhere around Hollyfast Road, though this could have been before then but in that area. My dad was born in 1937 and he went to Hill Farm School as a child so in that area perhaps? That is my granddad Laurence Yardley to the right with my 'nana' Rose driving! Big grin She was a bit of an adventurer having travelled quite a bit, and we have a few snaps of her riding motorbikes as well! Edited by member, 11th Apr 2016 8:56 am

In my humble opinion it looks like a Bullnose Morris, judging by the radiator, military wheels and body shape

Yes it is a Bull Nose but exactly what model???? Perhaps a Cowley? It looks a bit like the Morris Oxford but I know that it's not as I owned one myself. Best of luck and hope you find the info that you want.
Just old and knackered
