Detail from: Memorial to 158 Squadron by Peter W. Naylor, 2009

Bath Assembly Hall


Type Building

     On either side of the main entrance there are niches for standing figures, but these are empty. The arch over the fan light window above the main entrance is surmounted by a standing figure of a woman with her arms raised over her head in a stylised gesture. Her breasts are bare, but the lower half of her body is wrapped in a single piece of drapery that nevertheless reveals her left thigh and her knees. Her style of dress reminds the viewer of the importance of Leamington as a spa town while her pose suggests that she symbolises Dance. This would be entirely appropriate to the original recreational function of the Assembly Hall.
