These charming images are from a booklet of what to do in and around Matlock Bath. It was printed for Mr. Bertram Clulow[1], then manager of the New Bath Hotel, by Sir Joseph Causton and Sons Limited, London. The New Bath Hotel Co. Ltd owned the hotel at that time[2].

An advertisement in 1898 announced that the first class family and residential hotel was under new management, which is when Mr. Clulow was appointed. The hotel had been entirely refurnished and decorated by Messrs. Waring & Messrs. Goodalls and had "all modern improvements and every comfort". The adjoining Bath Terrace Hotel was under the same management[3]. One of the first things the New Bath Hotel Company did was to complain to Matlock Bath Council about the state of the road up to the hotel[4].
