Sansome Walk Baths, c.1910, during the period of William Park's ownership.

Compare the cut (upper image) with the photograph (lower image) of the same building, taken c.1910, when it was owned by William Park. We know that Bartholomew was muxh prone to exaggeration so—because we do not have photographs of all his establishments—it is most helpful to be able to compare these pictures and find that there is such a close correspondence.

Thank you icon

Leonard Park for his kindness, and for allowing us to use of his photograph
