About this image
Three young boys give each other a helping hand (and shoulders) to climb a section of Burbage Rocks above Hathersage.
The amount of graffiti in this 1930s view is noteworthy, although the neatly carved 'E C 1836' (lower left) shows it was nothing new even then.
The original caption reads:
'A Helping Hand. A Snap today on Burbage Rocks, Hather[sage].' The print bears a date stamp of 18 July 1935, which may not necessarily be the exact date the photo was taken, but is probably close.'
