Public Health & The Built Environment (2017)

On the 23rd August 2017, as part of our Centenary Celebrations of the opening of the Baths in 1917, we held a Conference on Public Health and The Built Environment. Invited speakers spoke about the reasons why public baths and wash-houses were developed in the UK, including the cholera pandemic in the 1800s.

The purpose of the conference was to bring together a diverse audience and set of speakers to consider:

  • The context in which Govanhill Baths was built
  • The importance of municipal swimming baths and wash houses
  • Their impact on public health and amateur swimming in Scotland
