Fish Pond and Pavilion

Lusby's shop

The photograph of Matlock Bath's Grand Pavilion (also referred to as the New Pavilion and now the Mining Museum) was taken from Temple Walk. The sun shining on the front of the building almost makes it sparkle.

The coaches parked in the Pavilion's car park had brought the day trippers to Matlock Bath and had been a familiar site in the village for many years. It is amazing to see just two vehicles on the main road (A6); these days the road is extremely busy.

The rooftops closest to the camera would have been Lusby's sweets and tobacco shop, run by Nellie Lusby and her daughter Edna (the taller building with the two dormer windows), the newsagency of George Barker and the grocery shop of Alice Finney (her husband was a house painter).
