About this image
Despite this view being identified as Black Rocks, Cromford, the location is actually in some doubt as the same place is given by the original photographer as being at Cromford in PTPD300137 but Baslow in PTPD300139. Can anyone confirm which is correct?
The climber W Ward was a stalwart of the Sheffield-based Peak Climbing Club, formed in 1942. The small boy watching is unidentified. Note the pair of spectacles lodged safely bottom right.
