Greengate Baths, Salford

This was Manchester's first public baths, built in 1855 by the Manchester and Salford baths and laundry Co. it was designed by Thomas Worthington, (1823 to 1909), who also designed the Chorlton Workhouse, the Albert Memorial and Minshull Street Crown Court. It was built straight after the demolition of the Salford Workhouse which was demolished in 1853 at the site on the junction of Collier Street and Rolla Street. It is now in desperately poor condition. This seven piece, black and white study shows it in its final stages of decay, with all the splendid architectural detail stripped back to evoke the last days of this fascinating building. One section shows the original Rolla Street road sign, still there after a century and a half.
