This is just a little fun shot – the two seagulls sitting on the wall are saying “Boy I can’ t wait for summer, there’s no fun here at present and a good feed of chips wouldn’t go astray”.
The Newcastle Ocean baths were built around 1911 in an art deco style facade. The baths are currently empty, drained for the renovation but will hopefully be open for the summer season. The sea wall in the photo has steps carved into them and as a child I spent many a happy time sitting on these steps cheering on my school swimming carnivals. There are many happy memories of being brought her as a child to cool off in the heat of summer. I’m sure the baths would stir memories in many during their lifetime.

Ideal as a gift card to bring back memories
