"During its Victorian heyday, the eccentric Mr W. Evans, along with his pet baboon, presided over the pools, teaching swimming, and diving into the pool from a great height while wearing a tall hat to protect his head..."

This doesn't sound wildly different from some of the pools around here, except replace "baboon" with "meth-head cousin."

Not exactly still in use. The water is full of amoebas that will kill you, so you can't bathe there anymore.

Been 25 years since I had a time in Bath.

Neat town. Don't really need to see it again.

Cleveland's popularity dwindled in the late 1970s.

It went to Miami, there was this whole three-hour thing on tv.
