Venus with a car 2: Renault 40CV

We haven't had any vintage Venuses for a while so here we have a young French lady with a vintage Renault.

Agent Triple P doesn't know much about French cars of the interwar period but we think this might be a Renault 40CV from the mid to late twenties (production ceased in 1928 but this is the mid-twenties version of the Renault badge).  We'd be interested to hear from any experts!

The E on the number plate indicates a Parisian registered car (France was the first country with a national system of number plate registration) from about the same period.

The lady's clothes also put her in about this time as well.  The shorter dresses of the twenties had led to the need for longer stockings and suspenders, rather than garters, to hold them up.

From a series of postcards, we would imagine. Honk! Honk!
