    No cable tram lines in King Street - this photo must be must be pre-1894.
    Henry King did take other pictures of King Street, one of them dated 1888 like the Bayliss photo - www.flickr.com/photos/powerhouse_museum/2363501042/ . There were flags and bunting celebrating the centenary.

    There's a similar (but later) view in this group of pics titled 'Christmas in Sydney' from a December 1902 Sydney Mail...in the 1902 pics the Sydney Mail appears to have blanked out many of the adverts - news.google.com/newspapers?id=Qm1VAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Y5UDA...
