You can see the mounts for the dual spares in the above picture.

Yeah; I remember reading somewhere that in the early days of motoring, it didn't really matter what side the steering wheel was on because most cars back then were open and narrow, and rode high (by modern standards), and you could see a mixed bag of cars with right hand drive and left hand drive. It wasn't until cars became enclosed and wider that it made sense to put the steering wheel on the side of the car that would be closest to the center dividing line of traffic.
