'Blower' is not an official name. It came into use for the Bentley 4½ Litre with supercharger, a rare and very expensive race car -- or a Ettore Bugatti once said 'the fastest lorry on earth'. The supercharger stuck out at the front and would be visible even in this picture.

Closest this one here gets to Bentley would be in my opinion a 'Speed Six'.
But I think it is rather a Lagonda 16/80 Special Six (~1934).

"OTE893" is a 1952 Lea-Francis, classified as a Tourer. I don't know if the plate is fake, but it should be taken into consideration.

OTE 893 as a Lea-Francis - https://www.flickr.com/photos/45676495@N05/8404938529 , https://www.flickr.com/photos/45676495@N05/4669071484 - "a 1952 (14hp) Sports special. Chassis has been shortened, and the whole car re-bodied from a previous saloon car." . Does it match??
