Triumph make unknown but possibly Thunderbird? Photo was taken in 1953 in South Africa

My dad with his Triumph circa 1953
I have found this old picture of my Dad with the last motorcycle he owned. It was a Triumph but I am unsure of the model. The photograph was apparently taken in 1953, so it is from that era.
I would dearly like to find one in running condition and import it into South Africa.
I would greatly appreciate any assistance you could lend me in identifying the motorcycle, and pointing me in the direction of somebody who could help me source a restored version if at all possible.
(I am more than happy that you use the picture in your website if you wish, although its a photograph of an old photograph so the quality is extremely poor)
I can be contacted by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your assistance.
