Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
I see two Volkswagens parked next to houses. One in the garden path of one of the houses near the water in the center of the photo, and one almost to the far right side of the photo.
The first four Volkswagens were imported in Sweden in July 1948, but the first one that could actually be delivered to a customer was in January 1949. So, we can date this photo to 1949 or later.
