Fašade of the Public Baths, Mill Street, Crewe

Fašade of the Public Baths in Mill Street Crewe, date unknown, from a postcard.

It is not known who the three people standing outside the baths are, but they do not look like casual bystanders. The most likely possibility is that William Gawthorne, long-time Manager of the baths, is in the middle, with his female and male attendants on either side. Although male and female bathers used the Turkish baths at different times, there are separate entrances for men (on the right) and women (on the left). There was also an outdoor swimming pool.
