ex swimming pool buildings

i can miss seeing things in london, even though i pass by it on the bus all the time… and i am talking of this carvings above the entrance to this building, which used to be swimming pools. i first found out about it via this article by londonist. about buildings that have been converted from their original swimming pools. when you go inside that building in the abbey centre, you would never have guessed it used to be a swimming pool. they have very cleverly converted it.

      i think i wont be able to do it justice, it is quite high up and on a jutting octagonal window. the link ‘headed carvings’ gives pictures of all three of them.
      in the real world , it would be so dark with soot, it will be difficult to show the details. that was why i never noticed them, even though it is about the level of the top deck of the bus.
