Salmson S4D.

Peering through a magnifying glass reveals the Salmson badge on the following car's elegant radiator surround, and while S4C has been mentioned as a possibility, it looks like an example of S4D to me. While the car is French registered, "6370 RK 75" (indicating a Parisian home), the photo itself is printed on Gevaert Ridax paper - a Belgian brand. A lady - not looking particularly cheerful it has to be said - is posed alongside this fine looking machine, possibly muttering under her breath for the photographer to "get a move on".
The tourer's roof is raised, and its coachwork bears quite a covering of dust. Note the hefty triple door hinge arrangement of this S4D cabriolet, necessary to support the lengthy doors on this particular design of body, or carrosserie. Maybe it's the angle of the photo, but it looks like it is RHD.
