A Vintage Utility

I came across this photo of a very old utility in my photo album, with no information attached. If there is anyone out there who recognises this vehicle, please let me know what the make, model, etc would be 🤗IMG_7178.jpeg

Possibly the same truck ... showed up in a google image search ....

Home adapted truck built from various vehicles for use on a Banana Farm in the Tweed Valley, northern New South Wales, with husband , wife, baby and dog on board. @BruceAnderson

The vintage utility is a veteran Hotchkiss from 1911. (it may be 1912 but not 1910) like this restored one. There are plenty of likenesses between the two, like the shape of the radiator, the name badge on the radiator, there are 16 flutes in the bonnet, five spokes in the steering wheel, the exhaust is on the right-hand side, the front crossmember is the same shape as is the front axle and the hubcaps are the same shape.

Wow! Thanks for the info about the vehicle. I didn’t expect such an informative response to my request.
Once again, many thanks.
