Those skips match the ones in the pictures in John Browning’s ‘The Southport-Burleigh road construction tramway’ in LR213 June 2010. That wonky caption about the hinterland came with the original State Library QLD source hdl.handle.net/10462/deriv/211235
On a pedantic note, the place name Elston was changed to the more glamorous Surfers Paradise in 1933, so it was still Elston at picture date of 1925.
