Hire Car Identification (update: 1926 Austin 20 (Ranalagh Limousine?)

Car IdentificationI have come across this photo of my grandparents with their first hire car.  My grandfather ran a business in Uplyme/Lyme Regis for several years in the early 1900's.
I am trying to find out what car it is. I guess it is an Austin as he would never buy anything else for his business. Even when he retired he bought an A40.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, From the slope of the scuttle, the position of the sidelamp and bracket type, the size and location of the airvent, windscreen, wiper and mirror, this looks very much like a cca 1926 Austin 20 , possibly the Ranalagh Limousine. Regards Bozi Mohacek
