North London. I used to pass by here a lot. The pool closed some years ago and was, you guessed it, redeveloped into 'luxury apartments'. Thankfully somebody made sure the beautiful neon sign remains.

Ken Hollings post here shows it's slow decay.

Scotch Myths (Dir. Grigor Murray, UK, 1982)

This film dates from the dawn of Channel 4 and was filched from my university library archive. It's a rather rambling examination of Scottish culture and kitsch, which does have some funny moments and features a young Robbie Coltrane, Bill Patterson, and great comedian Chic Murray.
Of some interest is an appearance by electronic composer Ron Geesin, who also provides the score.
