Ceremony at Fish Quay

What we know about this image :

Unclear what the occasion is but it is attended by what appears to be the Mayor in a top hat. The crowd are both men and women and at least three policemen are present. Fashion suggests that it is possibly  prior to World War 1 ? Can anyone shed light on this ? The rolling stock at the back of the picture suggests that it might not have been Hartlepool as one of the wagons has Hull Fish painted on the side of it.
