Chauffeurs polishing their posh things on Douglas promenade, Isle of Man - #3 in a series. Maybe these are hotel cars??

Lack of detail is really not helping, but those wheels look 1933+ Austin, doesn't look big enough for a Twenty, so speculatively a Sixteen Six.

But that's a guess, not an estimate.

Faint references in Glass's and online that Landaulette body on 16/6 and Twenty was called Gordon.

Update - Gordon was a Sparkbrook (Birmingham) coachbuilder 1920(?)-1939 and started by doing bodies for Model Ts and other US stuff (Chevrolet, Overland, Dodge) until switching to Austin in 1923 - lots of body types for 12, 16 and 20, including Landaulettes on all three. These became catalogued versions offered through Austin dealers. 1933 onwards they started some body manufacture for Standard and Vauxhall as well, but Austin remained their main direction. Folded in 1939, but had been exhibitors at all UK Motor Shows 1921-38.

That seller has 6 different Gordon leaflets/brochures up at the moment, with several pages shown. Enjoy them while they last ...
