I think this might be the old Northern Railway wharf at Toronto, the main lumber-loading wharf in the city at the time. It was replaced in 1869. The schooner Trade Winds was active in the port's lumber trade in the later 1860s. I can't see the Toronto islands, which should be in view from just about all of the wharves except the Queen's Wharf or the Northern Railway wharf.

Wharf -- Toronto


Pirated stereoview of the Toronto waterfront, with a group of men and boys assembled on a wharf in the foreground. a small tugboat lies to the left of the image. Behind it lies the two masted schooner, TRADE WIND of Port Hope. Two more schooners lie just outside the wharf.
