Memberships – to read about the Lidos and Baths

Ghost of the Past

Free access is available to the index.  Historic moments of the Lost Lidos and Baths featured on this site.

This website is a compilation of research from the 1990s before the world wide web! It features original newspaper cuttings of the day when Lidos and Baths opened,  the VIPs attending, and the stars that exhibited talents at the frequent aquashows that  crowds flocked to watch. Search box and comments boxes become visible when logged in, to enable any participation if you so wish. There are also some Pathe Clips to remind us how they used to be!  From scrapbooks to online presence,  it offers a “feeling” of the heydays,  very alive and vibrant.
