An early twentieth century postcard shows the recently built
Pavilion - built in 1910 and originally called the Kursaal
- and the Heights of Abraham on Masson hillside. The large
gritstone obelisk was mentioned by William Adam as early as
1840; he described it as "rude".
The poster on it obelisk reads "Big Show" but what kind
of show was advertised is not known.
The road to the left went to the Royal Hotel (originally the Old
Bath and behind the wall centre left) and then on to Temple Walk
and the Temple Hotel. The Temple is the building immediately above
Boden's restaurant, which is the building with white lettering
on the roof.
The small Spar shop advertised Derbyshire Tufa Stone, Rockeries,
Aquaria &c across the front. The name sign is not readable
and the sign on the top is only partially so (it says "Fine
Art"). There is a small white dog with black ears tied up
against the wall close to the spar shop, presumably the shop proprietor's.
