BATHS HOTEL, 10 Saul Street

BATHS HOTEL
10 Saul Street
*
The 'old baths' were swimming baths, and the Primitive Methodist Church
was converted into the present Masonic Hall, with some of the original chapel
at the rear, and visible from Ringway.
*
This photograph was taken circa 1937, and has been sent to me by John R. Brown, formerly of Preston, but now living in Shrewsbury. His father, also John, is in the centre of the photo with his arm round another man, his uncle Jim is second from right at the back with the cigatette in his mouth, and the landlord, throught to be Jospeh Bolton, is extreme left, standing in the doorway of the hotel.

Something strange in the chronology in the

took the licence back from Rigby, but I'd like
some further evidence:-

STORM
Amongst the casualties that have occurred today, through
the great storm of wind at present prevailing, is one at the
Bath's Hotel, Saul Street. The chimney fell through the roof
and forced its way through two storeys into the kitchen, much
to the surprise of the hostess who was preparing dinner at the 
time. The dinner was completely spoiled; but luckily no personal 
injury was sustained.
