Carlisle: James Street:
cooling-room cubicles

Two single cubicles

A pair of single cubicles provided at the side of the cooling-room for changing and relaxation. Furniture is minimal and comprises couch, stool, and mirror.

But also to be seen is part of the Terrazzo paved floor and, in line with the earthenware corbels, some of the paired tiles of art nouveau design noted by Historic England in its Grade II Listing of the building. All the internal fine tiling and glazed faïence work is by Minton and Hollins Co. of Stoke-on-Trent, one of the leaders in the field of tile manufacture.
