While the car driver is Harry Hawker, the rest of the caption is very questionable. Firstly the car is definitely not a Rolls Royce, it is in fact a Gregoir. I can provide evidence of Mr. Hawker owning such a car, and the name is prominent on the radiator of the car in the photograph. The registration number is a London one, issued between February and August 1913. The photograph therefore has to be set in England, during or after February 1913. The buildings in the background suggest that this is an airfield, and one of my correspondents indicates that the buildings appear to be the same as those at Brooklands in the same period.

Perhaps the caption should read- "Harry Hawker in his Gregoir car at Brooklands (England) circa 1913."
