Fernie Bank, early 20thc


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[1] in the 1880s and Mrs Howe continued to live there for some years after his death[2]. 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.
