"In the mid 60's the pool was known locally as the TIB. The premises comprised a Mixed bathing pool with spectator gallery with individual changing cubicles down each side for males and females.
The Mixed pool was about 30 yards by 10 yards, 3ft shallow water and 6ft deep water. It had a stepped diving stage that was removed in 1964.
There was also a dedicated men only pool, with 80 small cubicles each side, no doors, only wooden seats, slate divides and a small wooden angled slatted section above for clothes. There was a small attendants room and separate shower room and toilets off from this.
The Ladies only pool was about 20 yards by 10 and had cubicles on both sides with doors.
There was also a Ladies Warm [Slipper] Baths located over the Ladies Pool plus a Men's Warm [Slipper] Baths located over the men's pool.
The main entrance had a Superintendants office off to the left as you entered and an enclosed ticket office on the right.
Walk on and you were in the Men's pool, stairs on the left led to the Men's Warm Baths, a doorway on right right led to the Mixed pool through a vestibule
There was also stairs to the public laundry on the left next to the stairs to the basement.
A remedial suite on the first floor comprising of 2 beds, a large bath with a air extracting contraption that when placed in the bath caused bubbles to rise under one.
There was a very large public laundry with individual sinks and drainers and pull out drying horses. There was an Establishment laundry which served to wash and dry the used hired towels and staff clothing. This was located in the basement.
The main gates were off Greenman Street and there was a large entrance yard about 30 yards by 30 yards. To the right was a lock up store for visitors cycles that also led to the Mixed Pool public gallery. On the left of the yard were steps into the boiler room and basements areas.
The three boilers were originally coal fired Lancashire boilers and these were later converted to fuel oil." Contributed by Peter, former Sports Centre Manager at the Oasis, Holborn [1968-1991]

Public Bath contemplated. - The public baths and washhouses in Queen's Road were opened by the vestry in 1874. The construction of new baths at the north end of Queen's Road (formerly Pickering Place) was delayed by the First World War and started only in 1923. Two swimming baths and a laundry were opened there in 1925, followed by Turkish and Russian baths beneath the neighbouring Porchester hall in 1929.
