As this topic has had such a huge amount of views, and the baths seem to bring back so many happy memories for so many people, here is a little more footage of the baths from yesteryear.  :thumbup:

Oh....and I forgot to say Peter...thank you very much for the welcome. I love this site, especially the shared memories of times gone by. I was born and lived all my life in Blackpool. Having done well in business I retired a few years ago at the grand old age of 47 and now live in a beautiful place on the southern coast of Spain. So when I get those little homesick moments, this is the first site I log onto to read a few of the comments and catch up with any new developments that are happening. I get to come back to Blackpool maybe once, twice a year, and one observation I would like to make is how quickly the town is changing. Each time I come and go to visit a store that store is no longer there. If I turn to drive down a road it's now a pedestrian area. If I plan a journey somewhere from memory I'm in big trouble because the road layouts have changed and I can't go a certain way because it's now a one-way system !! It's not a very important point, but it does emphasise the fact that the Blackpool we see nowadays is not the Blackpool we all hold in our memories. This is why the "History" section here is so fascinating. I had entirely forgotten about the seedy little café right at the top of the stairs behind the diving boards, and it was only when I read Alan m's comment about having a toast and a Bovril after a swim that I remembered my friends and I did that also, and now it is one of my favourite memories. A memory that no doubt would have been forever lost had it not been for this site. So a big thank you from me and keep up the good work  :thumbup1:

Oh...and whilst I am in a posting mood, here is one of Derby baths poorer younger cousin, which I believe I mentioned in an earlier post, the long forgotten Cocker St baths. Gents changing rooms upstairs, ladies downstairs if I remember correctly.
