Facade in 2004  

This fine 1863 building was designed for the Roman Bath Company by Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt. When the baths closed, Wyatt ended up owning the building. After some alterations and dividing it into two separate areas, he let one part to the University Pitt Club, and the remainder to Orme's Billiard Rooms.
