The Building of Govanhill Baths: its Construction and Technology

Booking Necessary: Yes

This lunchtime talk by Roger Curtis, Technical Research Manager at Historic Environment Scotland, will focus on the processes involved in constructing an Edwardian bathhouse. What construction methods were used, and how has this affected how the building has aged? What challenges does this pose for refurbishing a building of this type? And what were conditions like for construction workers in the early 20th century? Join us for an in-depth yet accessible look at this fascinating subject.
