Victoria Baths photo walk, Manchester
Last Saturday, I went on the Manchester edition of Scott Kelby's global photo walk. We had free range of Victoria Baths. It's a beautiful building, in the process of being restored.
It's worth quoting the Victoria Baths site:
When it opened in 1906, Victoria Baths … was described as "the most splendid municipal bathing institution in the country" and "a water palace of which every citizen of Manchester can be proud." Not only did the building provide spacious and extensive facilities for swimming, bathing and leisure, it was built of the highest quality materials with many period decorative features:- stained glass, terracotta, tiles and mosaic floors.
It must have been quite a sight in its heyday.
There are some great photos of the place in the photo walk Flickr group.
