Fairly sure the one on the right is a Wolseley 21/60 de Luxe

The Wolseley Wist, a wonderful drivers car. There are differing versions. Oxfords finest, but only after Maxim of machine gun fame, Vickers and Herbert Austin started the company. All the more reason for a battle between Austin and Morris, as Austin was ticked off he missed buying out his original start in car making to the opposition. Its an interesting story we all know the end to.

Did you notice the Reg numbers ? I think the Wolseley badge can be made out but Bob Purton , in another place , suggested Morris Six and the same possibly ?
