According to Rail Map online (usually very reliable) http://www.railmaponline.com/UKIEMap.php and Wikipedia, this was Derby Nottingham Road

Outline of track of former Derby Racecourse. Last meeting held 1939, the Council allegedly opposed post-war reopening on the grounds horse racing attracted undesirables to the town.

Old bus station, 1933, art deco style. This whole photo is just a catalogue of how successive generations of local politicians have failed the town (oops, city, ironic laugh). St Werburgh's church and district (demolished to make way for a ring road), this bus station (now a desolate failed retail opportunity), the 18th century Assembly Rooms (demolished to make way for a new Assembly Rooms, itself now to be demolished to make way for yet another failed retail opportunity, because it will mysteriously cost £50 million to repair smoke damage), St Mary's Bridge (mediaeval with bridge chapel- still with us in a dreary backwater overshadowed by a concrete ringroad bridge), Handiside's works, accidentally burnt down releasing the land for development.... Derby was probably never very picturesque, but if they'd set out with an agenda to make it as dreary as possible, they couldn't have done better. It's the perfect background for desperate boozing at weekends.

Derby Canal (Little Eaton branch) had been abandoned in 1935 and seems to be partially filled in. This was the site of Chemical Lock.
