Despite the mistiness of this copy of a very ancient photograph, it is of great interest. Note particularly the low central building, Brill’s Baths. This was demolished in 1869, and in all my other photographs of this the wording on the walls differs from the words shown here. Also in this photograph the balcony beneath the words “Brill’s Swimming Bath” is covered over. This hood does not appear in any of my other views of this building. I reckon this photograph dates from the late 1850s.
