This photograph is of a gentleman enjoying the scenery in a peaceful local park.

He is sitting underneath the magnificent weeping elm tree in the Whitworth Institute Grounds, in Darley Dale.

The beautifully landscaped grounds behind the Whitworth Institute have been a popular recreational area for generations of local people, as both a family destination and a quiet retreat for the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The park is still used today by local people and visitors alike.

The picture was used as a postcard and looks to be from around the early 1900s.
