I’ve Been Away

So that means photographs.

And Art Deco.

This was a Deco house just off the A6 as you enter Derby from the direction of Matlock. Frustratingly, the closest I could get was the main road.

You get exactly the same view if you type 404 Duffield Road, Derby into Google Maps and do the zoom-in and a 180 degree turn, where you can see the porthole window I got in this next one. That’s also the closest Google Maps gets.

As far as I could/can tell the house is up a side road called The Close but it’s barred by a high security gate behind which are some scary dogs.

We didn’t actually stop in Derby except to take these pictures.

The next day we travelled up to Chesterfield and this was the closest thing to Art Deco in the town centre. In Cavendish Street, it’s now a night club called Escapade.
