Could you please help me identify this car?

Home  \  Classic Cars  \  Could you please help me identify this car?

I'm an avid genealogist and have just come across a lot of old papers and pictures from when my grandparens passed away. One of the pictures is of one of my Great-Great Uncles standing by his car in Cabaggetown, (Atlanta), GA, around 1925 to 1930. I don't know much about this car, but would love to be able to identify it. Can anyone help?

My guess is a late 20's or early 30's Ford Model A. Here's a 31:

points of reference being....

grill shell and emblem---definitely not an "A" shell

louvers and louver length on hood

emblems on center caps (and size of center caps)
