The man at Waterloo station

Many earlier books, including ANTR, had a photograph of a well dressed man waiting at a train station. The man was identified as JJ Astor in Waterloo station on Titanic's sailing day. Since it is now known that it was NOT Astor in the picture, who actually was it?

That photo appears (mislabeled) in Justin Kaplan's WHEN THE ASTOR'S OWNED NEW YORK (Viking, 2006). As Lester has already pointed out, it is very clearly cousin William who was (I think) twelve years Colonel Jack's senior. JJ Astor's detested cousin William has an unmistakable, dour face.
