Comments

There is another image on Gwulo dated to about 1910:

Peak Tram - Barker Road without a pavillion
Peak Tram - Barker Road without a pavillion, by annelisec

If you compare both images, they are based on the same photo but still are different. The Sternberg postcard seems to be the (original) photo, whereas this one is hand coloured.

On both images retaining (concrete) walls uphill on Barker Road near the tram station can be seen (see http://gwulo.com/node/33440).
