Carlisle: James Street:
ground floor plan
and vertical section of building

Ground floor plan

This is one of a set of architect's drawings of the Turkish baths, now in the collection of the Carlisle Archive Centre.

On this sheet, the ground floor plan of the building is placed below a section taken through the building along the long edge of the plunge pool, indicated by the red letters A and B on the plan.

Normally, for ease of reading, such a section would be positioned directly over that part of the plan to which it refers. In this case, however, the section is offset to the left. This is because the hot rooms protrude from the rest of the building, and despite this, the architect needed to keep both drawings on a single standard-size sheet of paper.
