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 18 years later, a second extension created space for a reading room and billiard room. In 1902, a first floor extension was added to one side of the building, giving it the form it has today. More about the building.
