    I am now 88 years of age and remember well my mother doing the family washing at Mayfield Wash-house in the 1930s; I also learned to swim at the Mayfield Swimming Pool. We lived nearby on Tipping Street, a long straight street running from Downing Street to the Fairfield railway arches. It was another world when most families like ours suffered from a deep poverty of the purse – but not of the mind. In those days, we were truly all in it together. Yes, we were poor – very poor, but I think we were enriched by the experience.

      Dear Edward
      I came across your post when trying to find out more about an image I’d seen for Mayfield baths. Some of my maternal ancestors were born and lived in the Mayfield area. Were the baths on London Road? They look very grand.
      Hope you see my post and look forward to hearing from you.
