Keith, Is this taken from the 1902 Mitchell & Kenyon film ?

Not quite Market St, but Market place. The drivers cabin was where the toilets ended up in front of the bus office. The lettering on the wall above is Commercial Yard, & the bulding on the extreme right is the Royal Hotel (later Woolworths) at the end of Station Rd
