Not sure if this was 30's or more likely 40's.

Thank you very much for that information Pat it helps I think to tie the
photo into my fathers time with the Royal Tank Corps in India between 1932
and 1938.

judging by the paint fill in the radiator shell, I'd peg this car
as a 1931.

You're more than welcome Andrew. Incidentally, for clarity's sake the 1930
and 1931 Model A's have a similar appearance. A handy rule to follow if you
ever need to tell them apart is that the 1930 models have a vertical split
in the so-called fender apron. It's visible in your picture just ahead of
the little jockey box on the RH running board. If the car were a 1931 model
that fender apron is solid from front to back.

The earlier Model A's --- the '28 and '29 models, have other distinguishing
features that could easily be missed by a casual viewer but stand out very
plainly to knowledgeable eyes. Mike G is our resident scholar on model
differentiation and he may be able to provide some illustrations.

Welcome to the group. Make yourself at home.

Thank you HP, putting it into the very early 1930's is close enough for me
to get it into the right period of my fathers life.

Thank you for the information Mike, I find it very interesting that there
were small changes made during the years of production just as there still
are today. Since posting the picture I have found another identical photo
that says on the back that it was taken in Peshawar, North
West Frontier Provence, India (now Pakistan).

top of radiator is not paint filled, that is a reflection so it's a 30
paint filled section is indented on the 31's
