The Arlington Baths Club, 61 Arlington Street, Glasgow G3 6DT

UK Grid Ref: NS 578664



Arlington Baths Club was originally built during 1870 - 1871 and is a fine example of Victorian Architecture of the time. It opened on the 1 August 1871 as the Arlington Swimming Club. Along with bicycling and tennis clubs it formed part of that developing interest prevalent at the time of extending a general state of economic health outwards towards a complementary form of physical well being. www.arlingtonbaths.co.uk

The unusual forname of Isidor L. Freeman stood out when browsing the memorial, but I can't find him on CWGC?

Cheers,
Derek.

Adam


He might equally have favoured his middle name (Louis? Lionel?) in everyday usage or Isidor might have been contracted to Issy or Izzy.
