London: 9 Caledonian Road:
a reminder of the King's Cross Turkish Baths

Just inside the York Way entrance to this new commercial development—which stretches right across to Caledonian Road—a large aluminium-coloured wall plaque is displayed on which are listed, among the many other businesses which used to be housed on the site nearly a century ago, these Turkish baths.

Since this image was published as a Picture of the Month in 2010,
an article on the baths has been included in the Directory section
and can be found here, with additional images.
