License plate dates from 1929 in Meurthe-et-Moselle: http://immat1928.free.fr/index2.html
On the left one can read "..,e de Maréville", so I wonder whether this is in or near the psychiatric hospital l'Asile de Maréville in Laxou, a suburb of Nancy (but nowadays that whole area has changed too much to recognise the location)...
As for the car, I just cannot find anything matching... This car has a very low underslung chassis, and the radiator is barely higher than the front wings. Normal Amilcars were clearly higher and narrower, only the C6 (with 1100 cc 6 cylinder dohc engine and compressor able to reach more than 200 km/h!) was about this size and similarly low. But those had a big exhaust pipe on the left side and therefor a spare wheel on the right...
Thanks again Mike!
1929 Riley Brooklands? Does the fact that it is right hand drive imply British? Or did other European countries drive on the left as we do in the UK? Wish we could see the fuel filler. Bob R-S.
At that time most of the luxury french cars had RHD, and there were very little British cars imported. Please send your email-address, I will send you high res details of the car, thanks!

How about a Rally? A company from Colombes, Seine and active from 1920 till 1933. This looks like the ones that were build from 1922 till 1930 with a French proprietary engine like SCAP, Chapuis-Dornier or Ruby. Post 1930 cars had modified Salmson chassis and engines.
Do you like puzzles? I don't because I hate it when I do not know an answer. On this page you will discover postards with cars I do not recognise, so please help me identifying them!
