Glasgow wall mural celebrating a private swimming and leisure club


Yesterday, whilst in Glasgow's upscale West End district, I came across a unique and vibrant wall mural After some detective work I discovered the mural celebrates the Western Baths Club. This club:

  • is a Victorian era private swimming and leisure club founded in 1876;
  • remains at its original site at 12 Cranworth Street, Hillhead; and
  • the building is protected through its category A heritage listing.

The building's architects were Clarke & Bell. 

The actual mural is continuous but I have had to split into three images for photograph purposes.
