I took this set of pictures on the very last day before the closing down of the pools sometime in September 1996 before their re-modelling.

A set of prints of them was framed up and put on show at the South Oxford Community Centre for a few years until they deteriorated.

I thought I had lost the film, and recently found it at the bottom of a drawer.
