This is a very similar view to Matlock
Bath: Jubilee Bridge, The Promenade, 1890 and was printed
by the same publisher - Francis Frith. On the extreme left
is a property not often shown in the photographs of the day.
Fernie Bank had been the home of the bookseller and stationer
William Elliott Howe in
the 1880s and Mrs Howe continued to live there for some years
after his death.
Fernie Bank was built in the 1860s and is constructed of red
brick (not really shown here) with stone quoins. The large
houses of Fountain Villas form the next two blocks and beyond
them is Derwent (North) Parade. Matlock Bath's promenade is
next to the River Derwent, with Jubilee Bridge providing access
to the Lovers' Walks.
