Little Jane's Quarry - Historical Photograph.

I have just received the following photograph from one of our GGmers, along with this comment…

"Take a look at the attached, Pretty sure this is our Quarry albeit Brading village looks very close."

I must admit that it could well be have been taken from the Downs - with the quarry below and with Brading in the distance. Obviously the sea came in a lot closer back then and judging by the dress of the people in the foreground, it might have been around the late 1800's - early 1900's..? I can't see any railway line (Ryde - Sandown) in the background and that was built around 1860 but then again cameras were not widely available until after that date.
Anyone got any thoughts…???
