Parnell Baths Book
Published by Parnell Heritage with the support of the Waitemata Local Board, this lively and lavishly illustrated book celebrates 100 years of the Parnell Baths. Over the years Auckland Council has responded to changing social and economic times, upgrading the Baths to meet public demand. The book traces the transformation of what began as a fenced off area of the Waitemata harbour to a contemporary seawater pool surrounded by boardwalks and 1950s elegance. It tells the story of changing social attitudes to swimming, the challenges of maintaining water quality, changing fashions in swimwear, and the huge public support which sustained the Baths through uncertain times in the 1990s and early 2000s.
