Artist's Description

One of the entrance plaques to the Grade II* listed Victoria Baths, Manchester, UK. This fabulous (Edwardian) building built in 1906 had for many years fallen into disrepair and was a sorry state until recently when it was taken up by the TV series ‘Restoration’ for special attention. With Heritage and Public donation the building (I believe) is now being restored to it’s former glory. Donations are still required to complete the estimated £20M restoration.
This shot was taken back in 1999, when I along with many others, thought it may be lost and took numerous 35mm shots of the facade. This highly decorated Terracotta plaque symbolised what many see as the height of Victorian/Edwardian class distinction. There are also similar Female and 2nd Class entrances. I hope the work gets completed to save a lovely Architectural landmark, which originally housed a turkish baths, laundry and the first Aeratone (Jacuzzi) in the country.
