Ah, Bramley apple dunking/bobbing! Nice W&W Cardiarms and one I would never have known having never been inside. PS. I don't get your "warm comrade's place" cryptic clue.

Good w&w.Nice image phill, ta.I love those old formula 'Leeds Baths' of my youth. But we were seduced by Harold Wilson's "White Heat of Technology" and the (then new) bigger International Pool (not baths).Used to go to old one on Meanwood Rd, never worked out where it was on my Buslingthorpe expeditions.

I have been trying to recall the old Leeds swimming baths I went to as a kid. I came up with York Road, Union Street, Cookridge Street, and Meanwood Road. Outdoor, Roundhay Park, Golden Acre. I'm pretty sure we went to Holbeck when York Road was closed for some reason, probably ice-breaking. I also went in the Eastmoor Reformatory pool on a couple of occasions after playing them at football. We used the International Pool on Saturday dinnertimes when working at the YEP. Just a bit of trivia.
