I came across this photo posted on another Forum. The owner, Ashley, has kindly allowed me to post it here and supplied the following information.



The Model T is a 1913 model made in the Manchester Trafford factory and bought by my great grandfather who was a Doctor in the village of Fulbourn just outside Cambridge. The picture is outside the house called St Osyth and was taken during WW1. He and another chap had founded a hospital to rehabilitate wounded soldiers and the two in the patients were patients on the mend. They used to bandage the shell shock victims so military inspectors wouldn't make them go back and fight.

Dr Frederick Lucius Nicholls is the owner of the Model T

Dane,

Great photo. You might encourage her to send a high resolution scan to the Model T Registry in England. And if she has a photo that shows the license plate she may be able to find out if the car still exists in the UK. Probably not -- but their license plate/tag stays with the vehicle, if I remember it correctly.

Respectfully submitted,
