The Turkish baths building at St Leonards-on-Sea:
details of chimney and 'minarets'

Chimney Corner 'minaret' Doorway 'minaret' Doorway apex

Images, from left to right: the original chimney, c.1872; one of the corner 'minarets', the doorway 'minaret', and the doorway apex, all in 2006.

Would the four minarets, the broken dentil, and the top of the Turkish bath chimney be enough to support a hypothesis that the original building was more 'saracenic' in appearance with, perhaps, ogee windows and door?
