Motorcar at Sutton Hall
The car at Sutton Hall in the recently added photograph from the Keighley News appears to be a Wolseley 12/16 Type A4 Touring Phaeton. The date of 1912 would be about right as prior to this date the vehicle had solid spoke wheels.

The windscreen was in two parts and has been folded down, most likely for the benefit of the photograph. The vehicle must have drawn quite a crowd as it travelled down the High Street, unlike today when nearly every household owns a car.

Could this be Emma Hartley in the car, as she is listed in the 1911 Census at Sutton Hall.
