I remember as a kid spending many hours in Bacup Baths. The little bath and the big bath. The coal covered colliers scrubbing each others backs in the showers. I remember swimming for bacup during the 50s. Swimmers names like Marshall, Woodcock, Gee, Thomas, Andrews. I would play TIG in the baths with other lads. Then hungry I would spend a penny (my bus fair) on a small loaf from a bread shop across from the baths on Rochdale Road. Then instead of catching the bus home to stacksteads I would have to walk home. The photo is the first site I got as I made my decision to buy a small loaf or ride home hungry on the bus.
