This was taken earlier than 1966, as there's no sign of the Hilton Hotel (opened in 1963), and the Murray barracks are still standing (demolished in 1962).

I wonder what the occasion was? There looks to be a military band marching at the bottom of Garden Road, and another group of soldiers further up the hill.

Update: On another photo in this sequence (https://gwulo.com/atom/33361), several buildings have been identified that were completed in 1960. I'd date this photo to c.1961.
