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)
Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos):
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". <Read more ...>
