Barbie, where did you get those pics from?  It looks like the prefabs, I just can't be 100% sure, but they pretty much look like it. On the first photo, just out of the picture on the right side, that is where the baths would be...

Enjoy!  Very Happy

Andrew, here are some photos and information about Dovecot Baths (which opened in 1936 and closed 1988) on the following links.

Thank you.

I have almost no recollection of the place & may have never even visited once whist I worked in Derby Lane and the surrounding district between 1974 and 1981, which is astounding as I was then a keen swimmer and would swim in my lunchtimes in the older Baths at Lister Drive

They were opened in 1904

They also get a mention - genuinely coincidentally, in this Facebook Discussion https://www.facebook.com/groups/h...ply&notif_id=1487350297284328

Thanks for the links Andrew, I never went to Lister Drive baths and was never a good swimmer.
