dating a photo

Hi there. I’m trying to date a photo taken by my grandfather. It has a few clues to the age such as a car and bus. Unfortunately the car registration only helps a little because it only tells us when the car was registered and then only within a 6 year window.


I was hoping you might be able to recognize the car which might help to narrow down the date? The bus may also provide a clue so I’m going to contact a veteran bus society – if I can find one -  to see if they could help me too.


The registration plate implies the car was registered between 1931 and 1936, if that helps. If we can identify it it would be useful to know when it was manufactured.


Is there any way that you might be able to help me, please?


Many thanks in advance.


Best wishes
