This is my first attempt at posting an image.
Hopefully, more interesting Jaguar photos to follow.

I see:
SS100
Series 1 XKE
Series 1 XJ6
XK120(I think)
Series 2 XKE
And I think there are some early saloons in there, but I am not sure.

That's all I can identify, hopefully someone will be able to confirm these and spot the rest.

Umm, first, let me "number" the pictures. I see three main rows of pictures, and some "double stacked" pictures, so, numbering the pics like this (where X/Y indicats vertically stacked pics):

1 2/3 4

5 6/7 8 9/10

11/12 13 14/15

1= I have no clue
2, 3 &5 = 1937 SS1 Salon
4 = SS100 (Drool!)
6 = XK 120 (I think NUB 120 was a Roadster?)
7 = XKSS (Like the one Steve McQueen owned)
8 = Mk VII (I think)
9 = XK150 DHC
10 = XK150 (Not sure the model)
11 = Mk10 (front)
12 = Mk10 (rear)
13,14,15 = Series I ETypes

I have no idea about #1. I am pretty sure about 8, 11 and 12. I am close to certain on the SS1 salon, and very sure on the rest. How'd I do?

#1 top left is a Standard Swallow, not technically a Jaguar, but a Standard chassis and running gear with a Swallow body by William Lyons, considered to be the first "Jaguar". It was common practice for coachbuilding firms to order bare chassis' and engines for their own bodies.

NUB 120 was made famous by Ian Appleyard (William Lyons' son-in-law) who rallied the car with great success. This was an early XK120, an alloy-bodied OTS.

Picture just below the XK150 is the front end of a MkII, bottom left below the MkX is the back end of an 'S' Type or a 420. The black car immediately above the MkX is, I think, a MkV.

Everything else seems just about covered. So, how did we do?

This is fun!
It is interesting to see which models we are more likely to accurately identify because of their truly unique shape or design. Sir William sure did have a greater number of distinctive design successes then many of us might have realized. We should try a similar test with, say, GM products or Ford products of the same period?
I believe the collage consists of the following
pieces of automotive history (qualified corrections cheerfully accepted):
Standard Swallow
SS1 Saloon (x2) (Year?)
SS100
1937 SS Saloon (notice P100 lights)
XK120 OTS
XK-SS
MK-VII
XK-150 OTS
MK-II
MK-X
S-Type Saloon
S1 E-type OTS
Series 1 E-type Coupe
Series II 2+2 E-type Coupe

Hal, I think I read somewhere that Sir William was influenced a lot by such Marques as Bugatti. I know when I see pictures of the 39 Bugatti Airline Coupe (I think that's what its called) I can see a whole lot of XK120 there. What do you think were some of his other influences?

Well Hal, Here are my "guesses".. when are you going to post the "answeres"??

Starting from top left "reading" to the right, on the "double" photos, the top one is listed first...

First Row:
The "First" Jaguar.. the 1927 Austin Seven Swallow, SS1, SS1 Coupe, SS 100;
Second Row:
An SS1, NUB120 is an XK120 OTS driven in the 1950 Alpine Rally by Ian and Pat Appleyard, A MK VIIM, XK150 and under it a MK 2 Sedan;
Third Row:
MK X Sedan, 420 Sedan. D-Type. E-Type, E-Type and an E-Type Fastback (2+2?).
