I would guess this and picture #19750 are taken in the garden of the Imperial Hotel, Albert Street. The hotel subsequently became the Education Offices and Quest Buildings, while the garden was built on by Woolworths when they extended their shop to Mounthooly Lane. I see from the 1911 census that the hotel was then run by a Mrs Mitchell who lived there with her two daughters. Could this be them and friends/relatives?
