    Yikes! That's an interesting one. Guessing it is looking west east up Bettington Street towards the Observatory. Or not ??

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] Good one!...I wonder whether there was a spot on the footpath reserved for photographers...or whether it was a case of 'great minds think alike' given the general aesthetics of the location...

    The shadow of the chimneys and dormer windows of these houses were noted before by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/pellethepoet/] on this "c.1910" photo of the Kindergarten across the street. Which means the houses survived for quite a while after 1901. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/state-records-nsw/5167426437/]

    All up, it's quite intriguing how these early photographers managed to take so many pics from more or less the same spot... In this instance there's the SANSW pic Beachcomber has linked to - www.records.nsw.gov.au/image/4481_a026_000186 ...then there's the Burragorang Valley (Henry King)... trove.nla.gov.au/work/227586160 [https://www.flickr.com/photos/statelibraryofnsw/37337861676/] ...then it continues in New Zealand (F.G. Radcliffe)... www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/dbtw-wpd/HeritageImages/images/p... [https://www.flickr.com/photos/statelibraryofnsw/23474405068/] ...and on Norfolk Island (J.W. Beattie)... trove.nla.gov.au/work/185665706 [https://www.flickr.com/photos/statelibraryofnsw/37298580566/] ...and even in the Solomon Islands! (J.W.
