Despite the printed caption on the photo, as explained at https://www.gwulo.com/media/40499, the evidence of excavated soil to the right of the Hotel in the foreground and below Chamberlain Road in the distance, suggest that the photo was taken in late 1896 or early 1897 - before the Mount Austin Hotel closed and became the Mount Austin Barracks.
