Can’t see the front clear enough, but it looks like a high radiator.
23-24 Center door ?

Looks like an oval rear window. Center door sedan, no later than 1923 (last year for those).

I just did a little research.

The photo is taken at the entrance of the sanatorium in the early 20's. Steve and Jeff could be right on. The oval rear window was earlier than 23.
The wood " Bois-de-Breux" is part of a place called Grivegnee on the right side of the "Meuse" in Liege in the East of Belgium. French is spoken there, I am Flemish.

The sanatorium became in the early 60's the"C.H.U." of Liege (University Hospital Center) Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Liege.

In the attachement an other photo of the woods that were at that time around the place. No woods left at this days.
