A delightful photograph of the Melbourne City Baths in 1914. The architect was John James Clark who also designed the Treasury Building, the Royal Mint building and the Customs House, among other major works in Melbourne. This building was completed in 1906, built by the Swanson Brothers. Today the baths are still at 420 Swanston Street and you can still use the baths' facilities.
This is a magnificent print that has had many hours of work being retouched, to present it as crisp and as clean as we can make it. Photograph attributed to Algernon Darge.
