Matlock: Training College Brochure (Rockside & Chatsworth), about 1946-47
Matlock : Twentieth Century Photographs, Postcards, Engravings & Etchings

A simple illustrated brochure, rather than a full prospectus, was produced in the early years of Matlock Training College.
It is undated, with no text other than the title "Matlock Training College" on the front.
The photographs show both of the two former Hydros, Rockside and Chatsworth, which were renamed Rockside Hall and Chatsworth Hall once they became part of the newly opened training college. The images include a play and a needlework display which would have been produced during the college year.

The brochure's pages are:

Page 1 - Rockside Hall
Page 2 - The Terrace, Chatsworth Hall
Page 3 - Play by the Dramatic Society
Page 4 - Matlock from Chatsworth Hall
Page 5 - Students' Common Room, Rockside Hall

  Page 7 - The Dining Room, Rockside Hall
Page 8 - The Dining Room, Chatsworth Hall
Page 9 - The Garden, Chatsworth Hall
