A friend told me
her dad was a Policeman back in the 60's and when ever
they had a vagrant come into the police station, he
had to take them down to the Municipal baths to get
cleaned up, a distasteful job but it got him out of
the station for a while!
Between 1956 and
1959 we too used the Staines Municipal Baths. Living
in Sunbury, on a Caravan Park we made the trip, in a
Morris Tourer, Mother squashed into the Rumble seat,
to Staines each Saturday morning, put our weeks washing
into the Laundromat then three of us off to the baths
for a nice hot soak. Rain or shine. What memories.
