Unusual. The car has hinges on the left door, the steering wheel appears to be on the left and the car is parked on the right side. I thought they drove on the left in New Zealand!

There weren't as many cars back then, so maybe if someone parked in the wrong direction it wasn't much of a problem?
When looking at the seatback, it seems it had RH steering.

Looks like a car that had demountables added later on. Of course there would be no spare tire carrier on the back. The owner must have seen a newer car in the dealer showroom with a bare, spare rim on the back. "Yes, I am going to have a spare, just like the newer cars" :-)

Norman, New Zealand cars were sourced from Canada. These had both front doors opening. Unusual to US observers, but the norm for RHD cars.

Allan from down under.

The photograph was taken in the early 1920's in a wee town in the central North Island of New Zealand called Taihape [pronounced "Tie-happy"] and is of an unidentified person. The Majestic Theatre is partly in shot.
