A collective REPHOTO project
My first guess on picture 46606 was that it was taken near the Waterfront, looking up towards Lions Head.
But as we drove into the city centre this afternoon and looked up at the angle of Lions Head from Eastern Boulevard, it was immediately obvious that the photographer had been closer to the castle than the harbour.
We drove down Strand Street, and I watched the angle of Lions Head change in the rear-view mirror of the car. It was amazing how suddenly it all looked right. We had just entered Woodstock, on Newmarket Street when the profile of the mountain matched. Who is surprised that nothing else does?
The picture was taken on the pavement right up against the fence with the railway line. In 1873 this would have been the Woodstock Beach. If anyone wants the picture taken slightly to the right, they are welcome, but I am not dodging trains on those tracks!
So, here's my vote for the overlay.
