View from Station, Matlock Bath
This is a view from Matlock Bath station towards the Heights of
Abraham. Out of sight behind the picket fence are the River Derwent
and North Parade! The view looks up Holme Road, with the houses of
Hope Terrace on the right. Fixed to the fence are adverts for:
The Glasgow Herald, Earle's Cement, Crossway's Gas & Oil Engines,
Melrose whisky, The People and Bryant and May matches. Its a long
way from Glasgow, perhaps many Scots found their way to Matlock Bath
and the Hydros in Matlock just up the road, to "take the waters".
Taken 1892, North Parade, Matlock Bath.
