Previous WW1 Soldiers & Civilians Index Next

Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: Bank Road
Date: 1914 - 1915
Description/Historical Information: The Brass Band is advertising Glen Alva Whisky, standing outside William Brailsford's Off License which was a couple of doors away from Vernon Lamb's home. It had previously been run by Luke Bridge. He occupied the building at the time of the 1901 census.
At least two of the men are wearing the uniform of the Sherwood Foresters, so presumably had joined up relatively recently. The group are standing on the widest part of Bank Road. The tram lines of Matlock's Steep Gradient Tramway are in the road in front of the group.
