The Toll Bar, Ambergate

This may have been a postcard as on the bottom right corner it says 'Blount's Real Photo Series'. The Hurt Arms public house (which still exists today) is shown on the left, the toll house (which doesn't) on the right. The administering authority for the toll house/gate, 'The Ambergate or the Cromford and Belper Turnpike Trust', is printed on the bottom left of the picture.
