Mystery Train

This curious photograph appeared for sale on eBay as being from the collection of Edwin "Bill" Robinson. It depicts groups of cheerful women (and perhaps a very short sheriff or two) disembarking the Atlantic & St. Lawrence Railroad at India Street.

In the background is clearly visible the Portland Company complex and Fore Street as it bends into the Eastern Promenade on its way up Munjoy Hill. Anyone care to try to date this photo? Zoom in and look around!
