Description:This photograph shows a view of the Memorial Baths. The swimming baths were built in 1906 to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII and have been improved on a number of occasions. In 2002 the swimming baths were called Jubilee swimming baths.

The roof of Brunswick Chapel is to the left of the Baths. The Chapel was at one time one of the main Methodist Chapels in Newcastle, however due to the movement of its congregation out to the suburbs, membership gradually dropped and in 1956 the chapel closed.

The roundabout in the foreground of this photograph is the newly enlarged fountains roundabout in Nelson Place. The roundabout was enlarged in the 1960s when the ring road around Newcastle was built.
