Is it a taxi? That looks like a fare meter
I'm guessing European.
It is a Darracq of French manufacture.
It looks like one of the many early European cars that was imported for taxi service in New York City. It has a 1910 NY Plate on the front.
Looks different than this Darracq to me. This is the only Darracq Landaulet I could find.
My learned friend assures me that it is a UNIC.
All DARRACS had steering column gear change and the commutator would be seen on the right front
