About this image
A rare view of the 'Switchback Ride' which was located in the Derwent Gardens on the western bank of the River Derwent. It was a small 'roller-coaster' style ride. (The ride can also be seen in DCHQ000954). Looking from the embankment next to the A6 road. The gardens and pond (which can be seen in the foreground with a boat on it) are still there, south of the Pavilion, adjacent to the footbridge which leads over to Lovers Walk.
