1914 (City of Edmonton Stables; Looking Northeast?)
The building in this 1914 image is identified as the City of Edmonton Stables in the City of Edmonton Historic Resource Inventory. That inventory also indicates that the building was designed by A.M. Jeffers (City Architect). Based on the windows and the shadows in the image above it appears that it was taken looking Northeast.
