Great photo. First person in my family to have a car was my father believe it or not. Grandfather only had a car in later years. Funnily enough it wasnt a wealth decision either, grandfather owned a successful clothing factory in the midlands.

As with any family history, never take anything as seen, the Edwardians loved a posed photo with props.

It could well have been his but things need to be in context, look at the 1901 and 1911 census, was he upwardly mobile, what servants did he have where was he living? Was there a studio name on the back of the photo? Family history is great.
