However, as an activity with salacious propensities — scantily clad or naked people in proximity to each other — swimming was disdained and discouraged, especially by the church. Cleanliness was always next to godliness. The Baths and Wash-houses Act of , which established a network of public buildings in British towns and cities, was primarily impelled by a Victorian crusade against dirt.
Associated with ignorance and immorality, dirt was also seen as an impediment to an efficient workforce. Swimming was a secondary preoccupation but it gradually gained ground, accommodated in increasingly elaborate Victorian baths. One high point was the Charing Cross floating bath of moored on the Thames at Hungerford Bridge.
Engravings of the time show moustachioed bathers in chastely voluminous trunks inevitably, it was men only , gliding around a water-filled barge enclosed by a greenhouse-like structure. Its backers hoped it would be the first in a series of floating baths along the Thames, but it eventually closed in Throughout the Victorian era, social stratification was rigidly enforced, with first- and second-class baths catering for their respective constituencies.
Women were generally relegated to laundry duties and rarely had the opportunity to learn to swim.
The catastrophic sinking of the pleasure cruiser Princess Alice in the Thames in pointed up this stark, existential inequality. More than people drowned, most of them female passengers, who would have been non-swimmers, dragged under by their heavy clothing.
Underscored by social and economic change, the development of the swimming pool was bound up with urbanisation, progressive reform and the emergence of popular recreation. The rise of mixed bathing and the sexualisation of public culture added a further libidinous frisson. By the time the former war artist Fortunino Matania designed a poster for Southport lido in , depicting long-limbed bathers enjoying sunlit seaside delights, Victorian prudery and drudgery were a distant memory.

The exigencies of postwar reconstruction brought the pool back down to earth. Municipal provision and a spirit of egalitarianism flourished, with nearly public baths being built between and Bon Accord Baths, my watery alma mater, closed in , and has since languished while Aberdeen city council tries to figure out what to do with it. But, as the RIBA display shows, more optimistic narratives also prevail. Jubilee Pool in Penzance has just reopened following a refurbishment that will harness geothermal energy to heat part of its pool, enabling all-year-round use. Intended to attract tourists, while also improving things for residents, the remodelling by Scott Whitby Studio includes an expanded cafe, bar and new community hall.
