I've tracked down the newspaper article about the opening of the Broomhill baths and first prize goes to Derilda. They were officially opened on 1 November 1952!
The comment was made that only a proportion of the men would be able to use the baths because only a minority used the shaft near which the baths had been built.

The baths superintendent was a George R Taylor of Ellington and he had been training two attendants, Jack Brain and David McKenzie.
