View showing the tracks for the Maori Hill - Ross Street tram service. The Chemist shop behind the workers (appears to be Wm Elder), then a space where the Roslyn Post Office was built in 1908, and D. Ross, Watchmaker/Jeweller on the right. Both Chemist and Jeweller shops are listed in the 1909 street directories, Ross was there in 1904 but Wm Elder, Chemist was not although he is shown there in 1907. This appears to put the date of this photograph somewhere between 1905 and 1907.

Site on Highgate cleared

By SAM STEVENS
A DEMOLITION zone on Highgate, Dunedin, will soon become a construction site, developers say.
Roslyn Bridge Ltd director Guy Smith said Construction of a restaurant and bar on the site of a former commercial kitchen, beside the Roslyn bridge, could be under way by the end of this month.
A 45-50-seat "European-style" restaurant would be built on the site, Mr Smith said.
Building and resource consent had been granted by the Dunedin City Council, and the company wanted to open the restaurant before Christmas, he said.
"There is a crying need for this type of restaurant in the area. I think one of the drawcards will be decking on two levels overlooking the city," he said.
Mr Smith said the project had an estimated cost of $1.2 million. The demolished building formerly housed a commercial kitchen and cake shop and, more recently, the Highgate Bridge shop, which had since relocated to premises in Roslyn Village, he said.
