Previous Working Men & Women Index Next

Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: Hall Leys
Date: 1910
Description/Historical Information: Large group of working men, all wearing cloth caps. The man standing on the far left is leaning on a winch and holding a large mallet. Two of his fellow workers have shovels. Behind them is a large metal boiler of some kind. It is probable that they were involved in the landscaping work laying out more of the Hall Leys in 1910, although they could have laid roads. Also see VLA5005. The man leaning on the winch was one of Matlock's National Reservists (see VLA5068).
