    The Manly ferry jetty is near new, having moved from the western side of Circular Quay either that year or perhaps 1891. The Manly jetty was completed December 1891.

    Similiar (but later) Mobsby photo - [http://www.flickr.com/photos/hwmobs/7041642663/] Re-used here: National Library of Australia - www.nla.gov.au/apps/cdview?pi=nla.pic-vn3097973-1&ref... A couple of elements have been edited out, but it is clearly the same image. The photo booklet design is intriguing - "Photographs are folded and laid in postcard underneath flap".

    The Hall photograph appears to show a brand new Manly ferry wharf, even before it came into use. There are no people on the wharf, no gangways, no cargo (cargo was a significant part of the Manly service in those days), no indication of use. I believe the Hall photo would therefore be late 1891 when the Manly wharf was completed. The next photo is obviously after the Manly service had moved from West Circular Quay, with Manly ferry P.S. Brighton alongside.
