Any car identification aces out there who can help with this one?

Possibly a Humber 15.9?

Most pictures are the saloon body, but there is this:

Thanks.  Are there not substantial differences in the area at the rear of the bonnet?

The shape of the radiator grille, and the bonnet made me think of Humber.
It's kind of half a hexagon?!

Maybe not the 15.9, but another model?

As I said - "possibly"! ;D
