Ballance Street Flats, March 1972


© This image is not to be copied or published without permission


The sham mansard roof has a few inches of water on the top, to keep the asphalt at an even temperature. Ungainly and obtrusive, they were most unpopular. Lord Snowdon visited Bath in March 1972, to capture the devastation caused by the 'sack of Bath'. This is one of 21 images published in Adam Fergusson's seminal book of the same name. Bath in Time has exclusively secured with the kind permission of Lord Snowdon, the contents of the entire shoot, many of which are in full colour.
