These engravings appear in "Practical Hydropathy" by John Smedley, published 1869. The thick book became very popular, appeared in over 11 editions, over 55,000 sold, with a price of 2/6d. The engravings show an era before postcards, and just as the railway reached Matlock. Click on photo for enlargement (on CD only)
