A goat-drawn carriage for children, somewhere in London. We don't know why, when or where the photograph was taken, nor the identities of the man and little girl. The only information we have is the name and address of Edward Willman, a watch and clock maker from Dulwich, on the roof of the carriage. J J Samuels Limited 1900-1920
