Thanks Mark, and thanks for all of your comments!

The car is a 1916 four cylinder Buick which a group tried to drive up the bed of the Waimakariri River. The cars abandoned in a fairly remote area but was later retrieved and restored. The tale was retold in an issue of the Vintage Car Club magazine Beaded Wheels many years ago. I will have to do some research to find when it was.

The car is a 1935 Austin 10 Lichfleld saloon. Either the car is brand new or the photo date is a little later. Note the water tanks up the tower. We had something similar, although with only one tank. I was told they were originally shipping containers that were used for more delicate items like crockery.

The truck is a 1936 Ford V8 commercial. The 1935 model looks very similar but it has the V8 badge halfway along the side of the bonnet where the '36 here has it at the front. The convertible in the background is a 1936-37 Morris 8 Sports.
