Fair enough xxxxlbear, I was going from the caption of the photo in Mr Lee's book, " The Railways of Victoria", and I was suspecting there had been a crossing on the up side of Newport station at Farm st at that time

Thanks for a great photo and some very good detective work on identifying its location.  Very enjoyable session.

Just a comment on the incorrect captioning of PROV photos. I have previously discovered three cases of incorrect captioning on PROV photos, two of which were blatantly obvious. So we need to treat  these photos with caution.

 

Location: Banned

I have advised PROV in the past of incorrectly-captioned photos.

There is an e-mail address on the website
http://www.access.prov.vic.gov.au

but I recall that there was a feedback form attached to the photo.

I have never been back to see if the change was made.

In another forum, another of the incorrectly-captioned photos in Prof Lee's book was identified (Spencer St, not Flinders St).  I haven't checked, but that could well be another PROV error, not an author error.

On a quick search just now, I couldn't find the photo from this quiz which has triggered this followup.

With the location wrong, there is no guarantee that the date is correct either.  However, 1905 doesn't seem to be way out; it could be 1910, probably no newer than 1915 [the main clue is the clothing].

Err, ahh sorry everyone, asleep at the controls again.

No pics on hand at the moment - so I offer tomohawk 24 hours opportunity to post a pic; if he misses that deadline then it's open to first come best dressed.

Just a bit of advice for everyone who identifies a photo correctly, when its your turn to post a photo, it is probably a good idea not to post one that you can't identify yourself. This is the 2nd time I have been caught out with posting 3rd party photos that have subsequently been determined to have been mislabelled and it makes one look like a goose.

Go for it, Tomohawk Very Happy

Good advice.  However, it is also good to correct wrong photo identifications in publications as well.  Perhaps there is a need to indicate up front if there is some doubt about the location/date/etc.
