Judging from the wires and flagstaff in the background, the photo was probably taken at the Peak Signal Station.

1910s Peak Signal Station

Hi Moddsey, The flagstaff in the colour photo looks to be the highest ground, but in the b&w photo it looks as though the people are uphill above the flagstaff. Could they be somewhere else, or do you think it's just camera angle?

Regards, David

The  flagstaff was not on the highest ground.  But it was within sight of all the harbour - which was its purpose.
