Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
I wonder if pellethepoet knows where this is?
Yes I wonder.....:)

that was incorrectly identified in Harvey Shore's book.

Wow..the art work is identical to the photograph (except for the people). We have officially changed the title to Ferry Lane
We wanted to say thank you to pellethepoet who has taken us on a wonderful stroll down Ferry Lane www.flickr.com/photos/pellethepoet/4330217516/

Ferry Lane (c.1902) by Sydney Long
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Thanks so much for that!!! It's the same photo that appeared in ‘The City of Sydney: the Story of its Growth From its Foundation to the Present Day’ by John Arthur Barry (NSW Bookstall Company, 1902), page 76, a copy of which is in the collection of the Macleay Museum, University of Sydney. They let me share it here -
I'll pass on the info to them, as their date for this photo is c.1902 (from the date the booklet was published). Your article shows it dates from the previous year.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] The early Sydney "expert" Dr. Houison mentioned in the article is Dr. Andrew Houison (1850-1912) - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Houison . His papers, and I imagine his photo collection mentioned in the article, are held by the State Library of NSW - acms.sl.nsw.gov.au/item/itemDetailPaged.aspx?itemID=949776
