Victorian Turkish bath

Victorian Turkish bath in Bishopsgate Churchyard, just off Old Broad Street, London EC2, UK.
Built in 1895 by Henry and James Forder Nevill, it miraculously survived both the Blitz of World War 2 and the massive property redevelopment of this area since the 1970s. Hidden away off the main street and surrounded by a sea of glass office buildings, it is now a pizzeria.
