A Grand Day Out


A Grand Day OutThis photograph shows a car that  my grandfather owned around 1919 (he and grandmother are rear seat passengers) My father sits in front next to the Mill Mechanic/Boilerman who was tasked by my grandfather to act as family chauffeur. 

Grandfather bought his first car in 1912, a De Dion Bouton 12 hp Torpedo, but crashed it on its first journey, and never drove again.

I would be glad if someone might identify the car shown.

I agree with Messrs Warburton, Dowell and Mohacek. Coachwork has features which appear on bodies by Cann of Camded Town, London.

John Warburton, Bruce Dowell and I all think it is a cca 1912 Sunbeam 12'16 (or possiobly 16'20) with a non factory body, so may well be !
