Barker Road Houses 1931 (annotated)

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1931

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

Junction of Barker, Guildford and Peak Roads [1898- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1898-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

Barker Road Houses 1930(?)

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1930

Bought this one on eBay (Gwulo insiders will guess why). It's a pretty small photo (7,5cm x 5,5cm), but it shows the clearest view of Barker Road Houses I've seen so far for early photos. My estimate is 1920s or 1930s, any better judge is welcome.

I think the photo was taken from Plantation Road, some 10-20m above the junction with Barker Road. The roof in the foreground right therefore should be "The Cottage". The next houses along Barker Road are not visible, the next is "455 The Peak, R.B.L. 150".

Barker Road Houses 1966

View from the Peak looking east. Taken from a higher altitude than most other similar photos.

(Colour error removed).

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1956

1975 Barker Road Houses

Interesting view (likely) from the Peak Tower. I think it shows Tantallon behind 41 Barker Road (Barker Villa).

The house on the ridge could be Abergeldie (2nd generation), but I'm not sure.

Eastward Along The Peak (2018)

Construction of New Falconridge finished. What an enourmous supporting structure for three small houses! 

22 Barker Road lot still empty.
