Vintage Car, Middlesbrough Registration

Other than the car has a Middlesbrough "DC" registration, I know nothing about this car or the building behind it. Can anyone help?

Teesside Archives ref. M/T/M/1 Register of Motor Cars in Middlesbrough lists DC registrations from 1904. DC 226 was owned by Frederick Hornigold, 82 Boundary Road, Middlesbrough, later transferred to Messrs Hornigold. First registered 12 July 1909 as a Humber 15 HP; on 5 August 1911 on a Leader Landaulette 10-12 HP coach painted green; and on 15 December 1920 on an Austin 20 HP yellow chassis Landaulette green. For accuracy check the source yourself!

The car looks like an Austin, around 1920s with no front brakes. The venue reminds me of Stokesley.

Yes,it is Stokesley. Kelly's Directory 1921 shows Frederick Hornigold, cab proprietor, 82 Boundary Road, Middlesbrough. The car is parked outside No.4 West Green (left) and the ivy covered house (right) is now known as Stokesley House. The chauffeur (Mr Hornigold?) is awaiting his passenger.
