Grey U.K. saloon is Austin A40 Devon.

The “Prefect” looks more like a Mk1 Zephyr to me.

Green/cream Lorry is Austin or Morris WE.

“Pininfarina” is a big’un. Princess 3 litre.

Some Rootes-scrap for dsl in 3rd row of that image.

sixcyl wrote Austin Seven(Mini) Countryman/Morris Mini Traveller in steel outfit behind the bus and the Holden.

Interesting. Aus never had Austin-badged Minis. They also never made a normal Mk1 estate, but did make Morris vans (with the usual shiny saloon grille, not the UK painted pressing) which 1964-65 were called 850 Van, then 65+ Mini Van. And because there were no proper estates, there were loads of folk offering window conversions. So the result looks and tastes like a UK Morris Mini Traveller, but was always a van in a party dress and lipstick.

Good find for Aus. No local build, so one of the few BMC things they still imported.

Aus did not like having a Singer range, so rebadged their Singer versions as Hillmans (or in the case of Vogues as Humbers). The Gazelle became the Hillman Minx Series IIIc Australian De Luxe [ADL].
