York Road, Public Baths and Library
Description:
June 2008. View of the former York Road public swimming baths and branch library, which also once housed the Library Headquarters for the city. Designed by H. Ascough Chapmen and opened in October 1904, the building is Grade II listed but is now vacant and in a poor state of repair. A notice here says 'Coming Soon...Refurbished Office Space' but this seems to have fallen through; the building was soon afterwards withdrawn from auction and its future is now unclear.
