Sorry can't help with photos. The place of my nightmares!! We used to walk from Nazareth House to the baths - unheated water and changing rooms. Swimming started after Easter regardless of the weather - I remember being freezing cold and starving. What misery! No wonder I never learned to swim! Also remember bending over the side of the pool looking for a coin my friend had thrown in so she could dive for it. My brother couldn't resist and pushed me in!

Yes you are right it never did seem to be heated unless the sun came out that is,It was always very busy especially saturday mornings,old dark wood cold changing rooms freezing showers before going into the pool and out,those rubber band number tags to get your clothes back, hahahhha great memories,I remember sitting under the fountain in the small pool I thought it was the best place in the world.I never learned to swim there either now you mention it, it was many years later that I learned to swim.
Back in the good old days eh :-)
