The disc wheels suggest that the car is pre 1939. The bonnet does not appear to have the louvres of a post-war car, but neither does it appear to have the hinged flaps of a prewar one. The chrome radiator grille was 1934/5 and then 1937 onwards, and the British cars were called either Super Modern 12 (1302cc engine), 12 (1628cc engine), Sports 12, or Light 15 (1911cc engine).

Take your pick.

Pre-war cars had much smaller hubcaps on disc wheels or Pilote wheels. Although the louvers on the bonnet are not well visible, this must be a louvered bonnet (by the lack of the extra hinges). The stone guards on the wings also make this a post-war version(I think these are of the 1948+ type). Only wrong element is the thin bumper and I think these post-war disc wheels were used only on the Big Fifteen.
I'd list it as a 1948 Light Fifteen, even though the wheels and the bumpers don't really match (but who cared, back in 1985?). After the war, the Twelve wasn't built anymore.

The car behind is a Lea-Francis 14hp Estate (or Utility Wagon,
possibly the same one as
