About our Archive
The Victoria Baths Archive represents the rich history of Victoria Baths, the Baths and Wash-houses of Manchester, and the history of swimming and Turkish Baths in general. It contains pictures, documents, objects and memories.
How do we care for our collections?
Our collections are housed in a temperature and humidity controlled environment with items stored in acid free boxes, inserts, tissue paper or fabric. Professional handling is given to all items that are donated or loaned. Some have been repaired using a conservation approach.
How do we use our Archive?
Items from our Archive have been used to create displays and interpretation boards, both for Victoria Baths and for other sites or events, such as the Manchester Histories Festival, 2009. Leaflets, books and guided tours have all benefited from the historical content and imagery.
