These charming images are from a booklet of what to do in and
around Matlock Bath. It was printed for Mr. Bertram Clulow,
then manager of the New Bath Hotel, by Sir Joseph Causton
and Sons Limited, London. The New Bath Hotel Co. Ltd owned
the hotel at that time.
An advertisement in 1898 announced that the first class
family and residential hotel was under new management, which
is when Mr. Clulow was appointed. The hotel had been
entirely refurnished and decorated by Messrs. Waring & Messrs.
Goodalls and had "all modern improvements and every
comfort". The adjoining Bath Terrace Hotel was under
the same management.
One of the first things the New Bath Hotel Company did was
to complain to Matlock Bath Council about the state of the
road up to the hotel.
