A remarkable photograph, still in excellent condition, of which this is a good copy. It is of the Baths, built in 1823 for Mr Lamprell, at the extreme eastern end of East Street, which protruded out into the seafront at Grand Junction Road, hence the nickname “Bunion”. On Lamprell’s death his nephew Charles Brill inherited the Baths. It was a circular, domed building with a diameter of some 50 feet. The photograph probably dates from the 1860s as the Baths were removed in 1869 and the presents Clarendon Mansions built on this site. Not to be confused with the later well known Brill’s Baths (1869/1929) which stood at the corner of East Street and Pool Valley.
