BRIEF HISTORY DURING THE SNOW ERA (1813-58)

While the Romans first introduced public baths to London, the practice died out for centuries.  The Royal York Baths revived this spirit.  They were located at the south end of Regent's Park in 1828 when drawn by Thomas Shepherd and remained there until at least 1870, as seen in the Old Ordnance Survey Map.  

The Royal York Baths are not identified in Reynold's 1859 map but are located just to the right of "k" in York Gate at the bottom center of cell H11.
