Ecclesbourne Glen early postcard

This has to be one of the earliest photographic postcards of Ecclesbourne Glen, showing the Coastguard Cottages as in it can be seen the rifle range targets and close inspection reveals the flagpole at the top of the footpath on the eastern side of the glen. There was also another flagpole on the East Hill near the 600yd firing position. Presumably these both carried flags when firing was in progress. Note also how much land there is between the closest cottage and the cliff edge, similar postcards show less than half that. Present day the edge is roughly between the 2 buildings.
