We arrived at a date of 1927 for this image by inviting the Public on our Facebook page to help us date it. The contribution we used came from Bernie Brittain "Vehicle front right facing could be a 26/27 Dodge Series 128 my Grandad had one."posted to our Facebook page on the 13/7/2015. We researched this model and found out it's date of manufacture here http://countrychrysler.blogspot.com.au/2014/07/100-years-of-dodge-history-1920s.html The year 1927 is supported by two other user comments, this time from Twitter: AuburnTower Jul 14, 11:14pm via Twitter Web Client
@PRO_Vic It's after electrification of the StK/PtM lines, so post-1923, but before closure of the Market St cable line, so pre-1937(?). HTH.
