Can see a Hindustan 14 and a W115.
Great photos! It makes BHP all the more valuable. I can see cars that are only shown in old movies; not the rare convertibles or special cars, but one photo, for example, with what looks like a 1947 or 48 Studebaker Champion, the Frazier that I mentioned elsewhere, and the 4 door sedan, looks like an late 40s Buick, but can't tell with these eyes. I love my membership in BHP and I thank the participation of all you car nuts, you are great!

Looks like a 1935 Ford V8, the gentleman appears to be a police officer.
Can anyone recognize the building in the background ?

The Delhi - Kalyan Trials, Dec 1904 / 1905.

Looks like a Triathalon with everything including water events!

Wonder where that beautiful silver trophy went.

"D.B." is a new "registration" for me. It probably was just a race number "Delhi-Bombay"

The Lanchester looks like a very early model with a leather "bonnet" and tiller steering.

Can't recognize the building in the background (American, you know) and there is something strange about the Ford. Most likely a '35 but the side panels on the hood don't look right, and the coachwork is not US at all. Would love to know more about this auto. Could it be a modified by owner type?

Kartik, what cars are there in the picture. Especially the estate / station wagon, there are 2 of these in one frame, not very popular in general.

On other note, this is from FB page, credits to the guy who posted this.

What car is this.

A Ford Cortina ??? Also some shades of a British Leyland product ( Austin / Morris) at the front.

The wagons in the Sindri picture may be Studebakers.

Yes the station wagons looks to be Studebakers. The other car in the Sindri picture looks like a Ford Consul I think.
