    Was the coloring that was used in this picture the same or similar to the technique that was used on some of the colored versions of "The Great Train Robbery"?

    probably not, this was probably hand tinted

    The style of clothing is much more like 1905 or so. The men are wearing bowlers, and that hat that the woman is wearing and her lapels all look more like a later time than the 1880's. looks like it's Christmas time...they're selling trees.

    Great Photo of days gone by. Look at the Sweet Little boy in the middle. His poor skinny legs. Times were hard back then.

    I agree with outnaway that this picture was probably taken much later than the 1880s. Note the streetcar to the left of the picture, behind the wagon, and the poles carrying some sort of utility lines. Then look at how clearly the camera captured the people who are moving. Along with the woman's costume, these all suggest a picture taken later, after 1900.

    Can the location be identified, given the iron railings on the right and the distinctive tower of the building in the distance?
