Painted before 1879. A 5" x 7" chromolithograph taken from "Our Native Land: Its Scenery and Associations." Published 1879 by Marcus Ward & Co. Noticeably absent from the view are The Royal Hotel (it replaced the single storey Old Bath Hotel in 1878), the old Pavillion (opened 1884) and the Switchback (built about 1900).

Matlock Bath, from Heights of Abraham

Looking South. In the centre is the large Royal Hotel. Below on the river bank can just be seen the start of the Switchback.
