Arlington Baths was originally designed by architect John Burnett. The single storey building, which accommodated the pool, two bath areas and two changing rooms, was created in 1870. In 1875 a small extension was added in order to accommodate a new Turkish suite, and lounge. 18 years later, a second extension added a first floor creating space for billiard rooms and a card room. In 1902, the first floor was extended over the orginal building, giving it the form it has today. More about the building.
