Christmas morning…

No expense was spared by architect Mitchell in constructing the second Branch Baths (RVA) with an elegant facade of Indiana limestone. In 1918, 47,433 bathers used the facility in the previous calendar year. This remarkable figure is an indication of the bath’s importance historically in the life of Oregon Hill and the surrounding neighborhoods, whose residents relied upon the public baths before private indoor-plumbing was ubiquitous.
