Very interesting!

The third one, of the Ferry building- I see nothing that would give the
photographer a clue as to where the building was or where the original
photo was shot from. Plans could give the location, but angle, aspect?

The Hobson Wharf is brilliant, but the first photo lacks similar aspect.
(May be wrong term. I mean the buildings in the background aren't
similar in scope.)

Also, modern clutter obscures older buildings, in those images anyway.

Anyone agree or disagree with this?

I disagree. The original building is still there and as shown in the
photograph it is possible to position a camera in much the same
position as in the original.

Fortunately, the original street corner is still in place. Admittedly
its not very obvious in the photographs.

Possible but he did not do that.

I think he did. Admittedly he is now a bit closer but getting further
away would have him in the middle of a busy roadway. See the left-turn
arrow in front of the BMW.
