Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: Stoney Way
Date: June 1911
Description/Historical Information: Celebrating the Coronation of King George V. The residents were putting the final touches to their street decorations. These included garlands, shields, flags and lanterns. The women are all dressed in their finery, so this was almost certainly taken on the day of the Coronation (22 June).
Stoney Way connects St. Giles' Church with Knowleston Place and the Hall Leys. It is extremely steep, as can be seen here.
