WIRKSWORTH Parish Records 1600-1900
Matlock Bank c1905
This is a view of Matlock Bank from a slightly different position
from usual, probably taken from Pic Tor. Bottom left is Dale Road near
the Bridge. The road in the distance is not Bank Road but New Street
and Henry Avenue. A cricket match is in progress on Hall Leys Park,
where the Bandstand is prominent. The spire of the Wesleyan church on
Bank Road is visible, so the photo was taken after 1904, see
photo 176. However, the tower of Rockside
Hydro (built 1906) seems to be missing (behind the huge Smedley's Hydro,
see photo 212). Lets guess the photo was taken 1905.
