OK snapshot: Roadtrip 100 years ago

This article is featured in The Swedish Tourist Association's (STF's) 1912 book:

Two Days in An Automobil, on the old royal highway Stockholm-southwards, by Gunnar Anderson.

He describes a roadtrip starting on June 20 (1912, presumably), with not the best weather, "close doors and security hooks, put on rainhats and raincapes, because it is only +9 degrees C, and now we will speed off".

Maybe someone can identify the car on the photo?
