having been built in the late victorian period, public lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity in the 1930’s. gradually, living conditions and tastes have changed, resulting in a drop of attendances, leaving the public pools uneconomical to run. many fell into decay and many were demolished. symbols of civic and architectural pride in victorian times, today only a handful of them remain as a representation of bygone era.

    These are such haunting images…It’s like they capture the visual essence of silence. Thanks for sharing! Since I’ve been a bit absent from the blogosphere this past year, I’ve really missed your thoughtfulness and keen eye, Kristina! Hope you are well. :)

      I agree with Cote, these are haunting. I love the consistency – and how they’re just so chilling – breathtaking. I LOVE your blog for the diversity of beautiful posts.
