The open air baths were opened on June 5th, 1930. Designed by A A Goodall, the baths measured 110 yards by 30 yards. During the 1930 season 223,000 passed through the turnstiles.
I have wonderful memories of the baths in the 1960’s. The water temperature for the day was displayed on the right as you entered. Temperatures over 70F were lovely but I remember going in the water at 56F – can anyone go lower than that? If so, please leave comments on the website blog. Thanks, Ed.
