Once again I am struggling to stay on theme for Sepia Saturday, and this week I've also decided against making a tenuous link. Instead I have dipped into my pile of unprocessed, recently acquired vintage postcards and come up with this one of the Pier at Southampton. What I particularly like about this postcard is the number of ships either moored, queuing, or travelling in convoy in the background. I suspect this is no longer a frequent site in Southampton these days, and I would imagine that the railway tracks no longer go right down on to the pier.
