To me it looks like a TT that has been cut streched,and a heavy set of rims/tires installed? Bud.?

Model TT Ford, early 1920s. The automobile was the Model T. The longer wheel base Ford with a heavy frame was the Model TT. Years were model years 1918 thru 1927.

It is a Ford Model T Ton Truck (commonly called a TT). IMHO I'd date it mid '20's due to the longer running boards. It's hard to tell, but I think it has a tall radiator making it a later production truck (1924-27)

It doesn't look to me like it's been stretched, just heavier rear wheels for the 5th wheel set-up.

Not sure it's been stretched either but like Bud, I noticed the heavy rear wheels that are not Ford TT wheels. It appears it has duals with the outboards removed. That tire is closer to the frame rail than a standard TT wheel would be which leads me to believe it is a dual setup with the outer removed.

That scene looks very English.

Everyone thanks for the suggestions. Now i have to search for some drawings, want to build a 1:10 model.
@Gilbert, sorry to say but it is very, very Dutch.
The houses are build around 1901 in Enschede, The Netherlands as houses for people working in a textile-mill.
