  1. 1916 Calthorpe Minor.
  2. Only pic I found without battery box or spare wheel on the running board.
  3. A car in Tasmania, Australia, described as a single-seater in its caption.
  4. Bingo! Google search on your suggestion revealed the 1903 Daimler 22HP Charabanc
  5. Old Australian photo, a tour group at the Jenolan Caves. Can anyone identify the vehicle?
  6. A bell? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. I think you may have it. 1920 Dodge tourer below.
  8. That's what I thought at first, but the images I checked had parallel radiator surround sides, where this truck above, the radiator surrounds seem to slope in at the sides? pic, 1923 Dodge Graham Canopy Express.
  9. Creator: Wood, Reginald, (compiler.) Published: [ca. 1880-ca. 1930] Physical Description:1 transparency : glass lantern slide ; 8.3 x 8.3 cm. Summary: Victoria, Australia. Shows truck with canvas cover on the back, two men in uniform (not military) standing either end of the ferry, two men in suits standing either side of the truck. I'm thinking schoolkids or sports team going somewhere. Can the truck be identified?
  10. Does that type of door handle suggest General Motors, or were they common? Someone elsewhere suggested it was an English "STAR", Built in Wolverhampton, circa 1908, but I thought the radiator badging said not.
  11. Place & Date Depicted: Mount Macedon, Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia, 1910 Summary: A man and two women in a car in front of the Waterfalls Hotel. A second man stands beside the car. There are two spare tyres strapped to the running board. Does anyone recognise it?
  12. Some kind of specially built car? custom bodywork?
  13. "First vehicle registered in 1935 was Q195-315 and the first in 1936 was Q216-215. This vehicle was new in the year 1935. Roadster was probably European, possibly a F.I.A.T. or a Citroen, The trams were the first electric trams in Brisbane known as match box design." "the president of the Eisteddfod Council (Mr A. P. Wynne, Maryborough)"
  14. Truth (Brisbane, Qld.) Sun 9 Jun 1935, Page 26 FIT to qualify with honors as chief of the city's traffic "death traps" is the McLachlan and Brunswick streets intersection in the Valley, where the third serious accident in the last few months nearly resulted in a fatality last Tuesday morning. Swerving to avoid a Valley-bound tram as he came out of Lachlan-street, A. P. Wynne, driving a sports model car, and carrying E. Rockett, of Brown-street, New Farm, as passenger, ran into the jaws of that tram and another going in the opposite direction. Yet, by a miracle, both men escaped, unhurt when the machine was sandwiched completely between the running boards of the two trams. A traffic policeman is now stationed there at peak hours. He "arrived" yesterday. This image showing a car crushed between two trams was published in the Truth on 9 June 1935. The accident occurred at the intersection of McLachlan and Brunswick streets in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. Surprisingly the driver Mr A.P. Wynne and his passenger E. Rockett survived the ordeal. In an interview with the Truth, Wynne described how the accident occurred. “I thought I was a certainty to be killed. It was all a matter of seconds. As I came out of McLachlan Street I suddenly saw the tram coming from New Farm, and swung to the right so that I’d be going with it and not against it when we struck. Then I found myself running straight for the other tram. The car was right in its way. I jerked the wheel again to the left, and stepped on the gas, intending to shoot across the street between the trams. It was a pretty slim chance, the only thing to do. I said to Rockett, “Now for a real smash.” Then we got it. I don’t remember. But I found myself still whole, and sitting in the car, with Mr. Rockett still alongside”. Can someone identify the sandwiched vehicle?
