Bingo!
I just uploaded a google street view loooking NE along Rt 285 coming into Anotnito. Note the two low houses with red roofs to the left of the tall fir trees, and the cream 2-story house to their left. They are the same buildings at the left of the ebay view.

In the other Russell Sharp view where they are switching you can see the switch stand is missing its target, just as in the original view. The depot view I put in for fun, though you can see both yard tracks curving into town. One of these tracks is still there up to the ditch crossing by the west wye switch though it's not connected to the main on either end. Beyond the ditch to the west it looks like the tracks and switches were removed long ago though are faintly visible in a satellite view up to the current end of track.

If you look at the pole line in the distant Sharp view, it appears to be about the same distance from the main as in the original photo. I can't swear to it but it appears in a satellite view there might have been a switch just west of the culvert/wye switch, but it's very faint and most of the land on that side has been regraded by the C&TS. Nor does that track show in Barriger image, so it must have been added later but to what end I couldn't say. I believe the road crossing in Barriger's view is US 285, which hints at the state of the highway system at the time.
