During the 25 years between the design and building of Carlisle's Turkish baths it was found necessary to make certain cuts due to insufficient finance being available to fully construct the original design.

So it is remarkable that in spite of such cuts it was still found possible to include decorative stained glass, not only as part of the necessary partitions between the cooling-room cubicles, but even, as shown here, as a panel in a door leading to one of the toilets.
