I don't know him!
Written on the front, lower, border, "Southampton-Taking train for London." Written on the back, "I don't know him! He must have been standing at next compartment. Boat comes up to dock on left, and so-to London."
Southampton has been a major British port for centuries. It's been a hub for passenger ships since the nineteenth century. When this picture was taken, it was also a ferry port, connecting England with Europe.
