Hospital Road 1870s

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

This later picture is taken from almost exactly the same place. Date is a guess, but I have other photos dates 1870s/1880 is these tones Also Burnside, (or Excelsior) seems to be missing,  there is a lower building in its place (I think this low building is actually Burnside and the larger two storied building seen in the later photo is Excelsior). Hospital and Bonham Road look rougher with lower quality retaining walls.
