I'd appreciate knowing the make, model and year of the car.
About 1958-59, Dr. R.C. Anderson purchased the cottage from the Post family heirs, and had it moved one lot west, to a site on the former Hubert estate.*
The garage addition to the right (behind the car) was detached by the Andersons, and at the new site was remodeled as a library.
The photograph was taken by Dr. Anderson and currently is in the possession of the Kerins family, modern owners of the property.

This picture was likely taken shortly after the Anderson family moved in.
The gabled side to the left (north) is the side facing Beaver Dam Road. At the end of the porch, to the left, was the Anderson library. Both features can still be found in the modern Kerins house.
This photograph was among those passed on by Dr. R. C. Anderson to the Kerins family, modern owners of the property.
When R. C. Anderson had the house moved in 1958-59, the path was across a culivated field planted with rye. It is said he had to pay the farmer $75 to get permission to create a clear path to move the building.
It is also said that this site was an early 20th century experimental field operated by Cornell University studying the feasability of growing grapes on Long Island.
