Hi

Looking for the history of the Attercliffe Baths and the Attercliffe (Free)Library.

The only info i can find id what is written on the plaques outside.

Attercliffe Library - Opened in 1894 in answer to local public demand and closed in 1986.As well as lending books it was one of the first places in Sheffield to display lists of job vacancies

Attercliffe Baths - Built in 1879,provided both swimming and washing facilities for the area at a time when bathrooms at home were unknown.This was also Attercliffes speakers corner,especially 1900-1939.

Any more info especially about the speakers corner please reply.

Thanks

Andy M
