The Public Baths, Howard Park, erected in 1887 by Samuel Wood esq. and Mrs. Wood, of Moorfield House, at a cost of about £15,000, comprise a swimming bath, three private baths for males and a like number for females, and vapour baths: the buildings include a ventilating tower 100 feet high.


Howard Park and the swimming baths, quite an early photo judging by the size of the trees. When was the statue erected?


This looks like a colourised photo of the photo below or just a coincidence the children are standing in the same spot by the bridge.
