Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
This is at Chichester Park on the Antrim Road, Belfast.
Excellent, Gerry, thanks a million!

Very nice shot, thanks

This is brilliant - I had no idea that there was such a thing as a steam tram!
I've never seen one of these before, brilliant!!!
Maybe a relation of 'Toby the Tram Engine'.
Awesome shot indeed!
Now with megazoom, I can read the side of the tram - it says Cavehill and Whitewell Tramway No. 1
According to Wikipedia: The line was opened on 1 July 1882 with just one steam engine, ordered from Kitson and Company. The route ran from Chichester Park Gate at the terminus of the Belfast Street Tramways line and terminated at the Glengormley Arms. By 1892 the steam tram engines were giving trouble and horses were employed to maintain the service. By 1896, all steam engines had been sold.
So the date must be 1882-1896, and most probably (given the horse tram) 1892-1896.
