Ross Willson has confirmed it is Spit Junction. The building at extreme left is the ES&A bank. Ross mentions the Mosman Mail of 2/6/1906 and a reference to Etherington tobacconist, visible in the picture.

Comparing buildings on the left side I would say 100 % sure that this is Spit Junction just east of the Spit Rd & Military Rd corner . . I stand by my original answer .

When I first saw that picture, I thought it was Spit Junction, looking back to Mosman (central) but I was worried about the grade. I then saw the Avenue Rd / Military Rd picture which had the grade but was missing the bulk of the Mosman Public School building - a nice new BIG building then. It did not appear in the right foreground. With the comment about the camera bunching up the grade I was certain that the Spit Junction location was correct. Spit Junction is in Mosman - but at the end away from the Post Office and School.


PS My first post using Google - the only frustration using is that you cannot post directly.

The key to that photo is the word Mosman.

The tram lines turning in the direction that they do

is the only place on the North Sydney system where

the lines turned in that direction only in joining the main

trunk route.

So the picture was taken from Military Rd Mosman

looking down Avenue Rd Mosman toward Mosman Wharf.

Street view on Google maps confirms as on street view

the building at the left appears consistent with what is there

Thanks Paul,

I'll take up Tony Prescott's suggestion and make a comment on the SLV catalogue.
