We have gas lighting, we have telegraph wires, we have (rather incongruously) mention of American Soda Water, we have a policeman’s uniform – might help with dating…

The very lovely Jayne Shrimpton just replied to me on Twitter with her dating input on this one: "Ok ladies hat styles c.1906-10, sleeve styles c.1904-09, so likely date of photo c.1906-09"

Date: 1906-09?
