This must be the baptism of that chap so we can possibly eliminate him as the father's name is wrong:

London, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906
Name: Leonard Rolfe
Record Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 16 May 1886
Father's Name: Thomas Rolfe - labourer
Mother's Name: Emily Mary Rolfe
Parish or Poor Law Union: Poplar All Hallows
Borough: Tower Hamlets
Register Type: Parish Registers

born 12 April 1886

While I was looking for records I came across the photo on Ancestry, I'd suggest getting someone who knows about cars (I do think it may be American, but not sure) to take a look and give you an idea of the era.

The chap in the photo doesn't look very old (30-ish?) so it may give some perspective if you identify the car.

Thank you, yes I think you're right on both counts

I posted the picture on the Antique Automobile Club and just received a reply that the car is a possibly a 1949 Studebaker Convertible which sadly tells me it is unlikely to be my Ggrandfather as he would have to be aged at least 64, very disappointing :( that is the end of my thread then!

Thanks all
