  • General note

    Signed 'E f B 1881' at lower right
    Untitled. Title assigned by Library
    This view may show the Corporation Baths, built by the city council in 1858 on a site occupied by successive baths in the 19th century. An undated sketch signed "S J" in which the same buildings are visible is titled "The Ladies' Baths Domain" (SSV1/BAT/1). Separate Corporation Ladies' Baths were also built in the Bay by Sydney Municipal Council in the late 1850s. A chronology of baths at this location is frustrated by inconsistent naming.
