A very empty George Street in Redfern, NSW.
Are there any clues as to when this photo might have been taken?
Can you date this photograph?
We have many other undated photographs in Photo Investigator and on our Flickr account. If know the dates or any other interesting facts about these images please let us know.

The Post Office is complete so its at least 1882 at the lower end of the time spectrum. There are no vacant blocks visible so the suburb is established. The spire of the church on Regent St is just present in this image (construction date ??) .
A gas lamp is present on the street….
Well thats my 10 cents worth ….
… and as beachcomber noted last week on the Flickr image, the Post Office tower clock has not yet been installed – so our start range is 1882-1891 …
Yes, we have the decade, but not the “why”. So far.
For those of you who like a good MANSLAUGHTER (see Lane Cove River photo a while back), check out the links on the Flickr page. Which house was No.28?
