Following on from the previous set of retrieved ancient photographs, here are some taken in derelict swimming baths off Essex Road back in 1986. The baths were demolished shortly after I visited, though some of the cast iron buttresses were put up in a small park in the redevelopment -- you can see them on Street View from Greenman Street.
Some of the photos are frustratingly not good, and time has taken its toll a bit too. But anyway, a fuller gallery can be found here.
If I don't see you before -- which, let's face it, is pretty likely -- have a merry Xmas or whatever other orbital geometry festival you celebrate. Mwah.
