North Parade late 1905

This lovely photograph, dating from about 1900, is of the Albion Restaurant and Boarding House on North Parade, part of a row of beautiful stone built Victorian properties. The wrought iron balconies are still in place although the plants outside the first floor windows have long gone.

The picture shows a group of female visitors with a male driver. It was probably taken as a souvenir of the group's visit to Matlock Bath. A menu board hangs beside the window on the wall outside the Restaurant. Beneath the window (next to the front horse) is a sign with a cycle on it that advertises "Accommodation for Cyclists". Let us hope that the group in the carriage were not just posing for the photographer and went into the "Dining Hall" for a meal!

The imposing row of houses beyond the Albion is Fountain Villas.
