Steamer?

Strange car. Many really early features and yet left hand drive (which did not become popular until 1912-13.
As Marc says, it really looks like a steamer, you can see the inlets of the mixers above the axle (below the condenser). Maybe a homemade one off!!
I wonder if it isn't a Stanley with a condenser added by the owner. And yet Stanley's were RHD in '13 and the body looks a lot older (pre-teens).
Maybe the negative has been flipped to make it RHD?

Les,
It looks somewhat like an 03/04 White steamer at the front, but the White hood flared back a little, where this stays rectangular.

Autocar and a few others were left hand drive as early as 03 or 04 (don't ask me why).

The closest thing I found was a Lifu steam car, but I don't think it's a match.

Not switched, button holes on the left.

I think it's correct, his coat buttons are on the correct side.

RE: LHD

Waverley Electrics were left hand drive from the very beginning starting in 1899.
