A Final Word.
It now only requires a full and proper appreciation by the general public
of the extent and result of the reconstruction of the Baths to make the history
of them something of which to be justly proud.
The facilities afforded are probably unrivalled in England. Many
winds have contributed to this end, many difficulties have had to be overcome,
but — the result is worth while. It means progress — another step towards a healthier genera tion and a happier citizenship.

MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT
Lytham Saint Annes
The Borough of Lytham Saint Annes possesses many advantages from a
health point of view. The climate is equable, dry and moderately bracing.
The winters are usually mild, and the summers not unpleasantly warm.
The soil is of a porous, sandy nature, and after rain drying takes place
very quickly. There is a marked absence of mist and
The aspect of the curving coast line is south at Lytham, south-west at
Ansdell, and due west at Saint Annes.
The water supply, obtained from the Rivers Calder and Hodder, and the
Grizedale Brook, is abundant, and of excellent quality.
Sufferers from rheumatism, asthma, and various bronchial complaints, are
enabled to live here in comparative comfort.
Convalescents from debilitating disease, elderly persons, and those affected with
heart trouble, can get about easily, owing to the
conformation of the Borough, which is entirely flat, with the
exception, of the sand dunes. Hydrotherapy and almost every kind of electrical
treatment are available, and the most up-to-date
Remedial Baths have been constructed.
