Barker Road Houses 1931 (annotated)

Cropped from Looking east from the Peak 1931

This photo was probably taken from Lugard Road. Many of the Barker Road photos were taken from Victoria Gap which results in an acute angle and "compresses" the distances. This photo has an obtuse angle and shows the distances between the building in a more realistic way.

The following houses are visible (to my best notice)

A   Crow's Nest

B   Dunedin

C   Victoria Hospital

D   Victoria Hospital Maternity Block

E   Cragside

F   Altadena

G   Richmond House (1st gen.)

H   RBL 155

I   455, The Peak RBL 150

J   Tantallon

K   Tai Wo

L   unknown (today Haking Mansion)

M   The Cottage

N   Barker Road Tram Station

O   Glenshiel
