I love it. Funny lights and all.
The rear fenders look strange as well?
Also It is RHD so it was probably taken in the British Empire prior to WW1.
I agree RHD, has the 1911 style radiator, looks to be a late 1910 car. I have never seen this photo before. The rear mudguards have what looks like to me is a flap added to reduce the splash.
Great photo, thanks Jay! Looks like there may be a steamer in the background. Like the young lad with the cowboy hat.
That left headlight must have been used to spot the bi-planes coming in to dive bomb at night!
Note, it appears to have a 1909-1910 body. Note the molding on the rear door that matches the notched front seat and the notched rear seat. It also appears that the hood former has the 1909-10 notch / bump on the hood former. It has the one piece front spindles that were phased out during 1911 production. The rear fender still has the 1909-10 butter fly fender brackets that run up the outside of the fender rather than the very early 1909 where the bracket was centered.
The left front tire has that distinctive tread that was produced in Australia starting sometime around the mid-teens. http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/P-R.htm#rad I don’t know if that straight across tread was used in other locations or not.
Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/P-R.htm#rad in the USA “Ford began making radiators beginning about 12,000, and supplied all after about 17,000. It may be the Ford brand that began the standard “Ford” script on the upper tank. Mounted with studs instead of screws. About mid-year, 1910, a number of modifications were made, including a higher filler neck and the addition of the support bar across the lower part of the radiator core.” I do not know when Ford of Canada went to the later style radiator.
My initial guess, based on the body, splash apron gap, fender brackets, hood former with notch, lack of windshield, and tread on the tires, I think it would be a later 1909 to 1910 that has a later model radiator and the later treaded tires. Most likely taken in Australia. If anyone has some supporting data or data to refine/correct that guess, please let us know.

I think it is a 1910 model year car.
Love to know the location.
Anybody recognise the uniforms?

Looks like NZ based on this link:
I just read that link.
So, I was just wondering---What is an A&P show?

An A&P show is an Agricultural and Pastoral Show. What we would call a county or state fair in the US. Here is the biggest in NZ:
