Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: -
Date: 1910 - 1914
Description/Historical Information: Two women outside a detached stone built house raised above the level of the road, which has railings surrounding the small terrace. It says "Apartments" over the door but the house name above to door is not readable. There are large lumps of coal in the road, presumably delivered to the property next door as this house appears to have a coal-hole; it can be seen in the far end of the wall below the terrace. Access to the terrace and front door was through the gate and from steps at the side of the building closest to the camera (hidden by the wall), as the railings surrounding the terrace do not touch the house wall. Interestingly, although the house itself seems to have been relatively newly built, the step under the gate (behind the coal) is very worn.
