Looks like a Rover 12HP from the second half of the 30s. Except for the heavy name plate on top of the grille, and the bar between the headlamps...

A weird and wonderful thought - another late 30s registered biggish rare Triumph with Doncaster DT plate on its holidays captured on period film - /vehicle_676694-Triumph-Gloria-Fourteen-1938.html - I wonder if there was a connection such as the same family were caravanners before WW2 ...... (so this becomes late 30s footage, not 1950s).

Fine, but not the bit with the Super Snipe Mk ll or the Vanguard in!

Looking a bit closer, this Triumph bears a few scars of use, dull paintwork, only one windscreen wiper, and a strange looking arrangement attached to the scuttle. (Extending mirror, I think.) It is also a year or two older than the Gloria, but still apparently in use in the early fifties. The white marker paint and the headlamp diffuser indicate the wartime use of the Gloria, wonder how he got the petrol?

The group of cars in the latter picture on the film's homepage look like Caravan Club members, there is even a flagpole in the background to act as a meeting point and for the last day cheerio session. Been there, done that, lots of times.
