Cookridge Street Baths
17th November 1928. Also known as Oriental and General baths. Designed by Cuthbert Brodrick, costing £13,000, the baths were opened in 1867. With some alterations in 1882, they remained in use until finally closing in the late 1960s and subsequently being demolished, the only one of Cuthbert Brodrick's buildings in Leeds to suffer this fate. The site is now part of Millennium Square. This view shows the central entrance with notice for 'Ladies Turkish Bath'. There are separate entrance for men on the right, and women on the left. Posters extoll the benefits of 'sunbaths' for health.
