I came across this by chance when searching for info on stagecoaches. I am familiar with the photo which came from my grandmother [she is on back left] but the title is misleading. It is a group of young women presenting a tableau in front of a painted backdrop c 1905 at a celebration at West Park, Pakington St/Autumn St corner. There is no stagecoach present. I have noted the photo number and will find the original and send further detail on this. I think it was for say the proclamation of Geelong West as a town.
