Vintage Home Show at Victoria Baths

The Vintage Home Show was held in one of the pools which currently has a hard floor over the pool. Serious furniture lust took place but I brought home two Ladybird books and a reproduction rabbit jelly mould.

Dad and I went on a guided tour hosted by one of Victoria Baths volunteers. We learnt all about the class divide during the Victorian era, how the baths changed over time and what the plans are for the restoration.

Many professional swimmers trained here including  Sunny Lowry who was the first British woman to swim the channel.
