    I was born in 1948 and swam regularly with a gang of mates every spring/summer holidays at Withington
    where I self-taught myself to swim and I’m now very interested in looking back on this element of Manchester history.
    My swimming beginnings would be from about mid fifties to early sixties.
    We occasionally would travel to High Street or Levenshulme baths for a change.
    After becoming football daft swimming faded into the background until I married and had a couple of boys
    who I would take once they’d learned to swim (1978/1988) but was not the same.
    Started swimming again, after knee problems from too much football and squash, in 1990 and now go 5/6 times a week and love it.
    My knees have greatly benefited from this exercise.
    Then I came across some M/cr Bath House Committee swimming certificates dated 1926 and 1927, of my mothers (b.1914).
    She grew up in Hulme so I presume she learnt to swim and got these certs. at Leaf Street baths which was just around the corner.
    (Is there any archives/information available about Leaf Street baths?)
    These are magnificent pieces of artwork and I’ve had framed and put on the wall.
    These should be seen on display at one of the old baths like High Street.
    Is their any sort of museum type place for early 20th century swimming baths etc?
