If you mean the car in the lower right, I would think maybe 1949-51 Ford.

I agree with Keiser - the two-toned car with whitewall tires is definitely a 1949-51 Ford, and I'm reasonably certain it's from 1951.

In the original photo, the paint scheme on the Ford is, to me, reminiscent of a taxicab.

Might I ask what the other vehicles on the road are?

Plenty of RHD American cars in countries that drive on the left.

Is it possible that the photo is reversed.  What if it was flipped over?

US car but in a UK location - being driven on the correct side of the road.

Fixed that for ya ;)

 

The one at the top of the photo appears to be a European woody. 1949 Alvis, Austin, Lea-Frances ?...

My guess would be Austin..

My first thought was it was a van. I thought Thames but probably too recent.

 

The light coloured car is a Ford Popular perhaps?

I think you're close, Spinneyhill.  I'm quite sure that the vehicle at the top of the picture is a Fordson E83W, produced 1938-57.  Even though it is a long distance picture, the large painted hubcaps common to the E83W are noticeable.  The light coloured car is too big to be a "Pop", though.  They were two door, four light saloons.  This car is a four door, six light saloon which to me looks like a 1938-48 Hillman Minx.  Both of these vehicles were quite common where I grew up (Victoria, British Columbia) and as a very young car nut I became very familiar with examples of each of them.
