FERRY OVER THE DERWENT, MATLOCK BATH
Drawn by T. Allom
Engraved by J. W. Lowry


The engraving of the Ferry was from a picture by Thomas Allom[1] and was published in London (1837) for "The Counties of Chester, Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Rutland, & Lincoln Illustrated". The steel engraving was executed by Joseph Wilson Lowry (1803-1879)[2]. The hand colouring is a later addition.
