Can anyone tell me where this is please? It was taken in 1954 but my husband has not given a location for it.
I think this could be Zetland Street in Central (Victoria) looking up towards Ice House Street.
Does the sign on the right by the doorway say "King's Studio",and does that help?
Hi, I had the same feeling when I saw the photo - definitely looking up to Ice House Street
By coincidence, the next photo I'm working on has stamped on the back: "Photo by King's Studio. 16, Queen's Road, C." It's from the 1930s.
Today's map shows that Zetland Street runs between 18 and 20 Queen's Rd C. But a 1911 map (Mapping Hong Kong, Plate 3-4) shows that the building on the south-west corner of the junction of Queen's Rd C and Zetland St was number 16. Which is a long-winded way of saying that Moddsey & 80sKid are right!
Thank you everyone, you have come up trumps yet again.
