Behind Ruddock and Fryer, Hastings Street intersects Tennyson Street. On the extreme right of the photograph are the Bank of Australasia, Hardy and Sidey (ironmongers), and the Masonic Hotel. In the distance, the Clarendon Hotel and the premises of the Victoria Fire and Marine Insurance Company (in the Roope Brooking building) are visible along Shakespeare Road.
