This shot is of the old baths area Mr Wynne built the baths for his wife, the building is fitted with wonderful stained glass, and is now a museum.
The curious thing in this shot was the flashy old style loo, which was china and decorated like a porcelain wedgewood dinner plate lol
The Turkish Bath is an example of the Federation Free Classical style with an infusion of Italianate stylising. The bricks were made by Wynne. The building is in good condition and retains a substantial proportion of original fabric and integrity. Recent research indicates the Turkish Bath house was built (well) before 1890 for use by Richard Wynne’s wife Mary Anne, who had fallen into ill health and whose doctors had prescribed a course of Turkish baths. Mrs Wynne died in July 1889 of abdominal cancer (Previously it was assumed to have been built c1892). Surviving Turkish Bath Houses are extremely rare in Australia – Dunmore station in Western Victoria has one made of basalt, c1866 (Lewis, undated).
