On Tuesday I was in London, I spent the morning in Trafalgar Square. It had been quite some time since I had been there.......I found it quite photogenic:)
The big blue chicken is the latest art installation on the Fourth Plinth.....love it or hate it!
Today I went to Manchester to the Victoria Baths.....opened in 1906 and closed in 1993 after which it fell derelict
there were three entrances....males 1st class.....males 2nd class and females.
Inside there were three pools for the three different classes, apparently the water from the 1st class males was pumped out and passed through a simple sand filter into the 2nd class male pool and from there eventually into the female pool. The price of entry into the pools depended on how clean the water was, the dirtier it was the cheaper the entry:)
the female pool........
lily stained glass inside a changing cubicle......
incredible stained glass in the Turkish Bath
no colour in this piece but still beautiful
this window is in the clock tower where only the guy who wound the clock once a week would see it
green tiled stair balustrade
An incredible place, well worth a visit.
