Pre 1914, I'd say. During the first world war, there would have been newspaper posters all over the place with the latest developments.

If I could make out what lettering style and garter logo are on the side of the tram, I could pin it down better.

I can't see properly, but I think that the trams are bogie - though not covered upstairs. That might suggest late 1910s, maybe within the 1909-1912 period at a wild guess.

Tram livery appears to be dark blue & white, so that would fit that period. The grey with yellow lining was, I think, earlier, and the green obviously later.

Clothing of people suggests early 1910s.

Clearly it is well after 1900, as not only are the repairs to the station evident after the accident, but the (new) brickwork looks weathered by this stage. If it looked brand new I'd say 1902 or 3, but it has to be later.
