BATHS ON FORESHORE. Mr. J. H. Holmes Explains Scheme to Councillors. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 6 March 1915
BATHS ON FORESHORE. Mr. J. H. Holmes Explains Scheme to Councillors. At the sitting of the Town Council on Tuesday evening, Mr. J. H. Holmes attended and presented a baths scheme which he considered could be carried out in connection with the foreshore improvement shortly to be undertaken. Mr. Holmes's suggestion was based on an idea carried out at Napier, in New Zealand, photographs of which he handed to councillors. The proposal was to dig a baths out on the fore shore, between the piers, and pump sea water in. The intake and outflow could be made continu6us, so that clean water would always be available for bathers. By so placing the baths, the water would not be subject to weather conditions, and he believed would be availed of by various swimming clubs for the conduct of carnivals. Hot baths could also be provided by a means suggested, and the fact that the situation was on the tram and railway terminus would mean good business resulting from outsiders. Mr. Holmes ventured the ...

Worst of all the Government held-the land idle and the municipality had no possibi lity of making any progress in con sequence. It seemed to him they. ...
