Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: Rutland Street
Date: 1910 - 1914
Description/Historical Information: Four cars, with drivers, outside Hand's Garage, the Gate Inn corner of Smedley Street and Rutland Street. Presumably these were all taxis as they had racks for luggage on the top of each vehicle [also see VLA4945 and VLA4952].
The lines in the road are tram lines. Trams would pass each other on the Smedley Street junction when they were on their way down the hill to Crown Square or up the hill to just below Rockside on Wellington Street.
