Wilhelm Klemming

In 1904 the public bath Centralbadet in Stockholm opened. The architect and builder Wilhelm Klemming's art nouveau swimming palace with its baroque garden could welcome the first visitors. The same man also built other swimming establishments but few remain today. Willhelm's sideburns were, judging from the bust in the park outside Centralbadet, following his cheek in a smooth and sensitive way.

Snyggt. Önskar jag hade lika stora.

Wilhelm Klemming ritade också Renströmska badet i Göteborg som nyligen har restaurerats. Det finns alltså tre badanläggningar av hans ritstift kvar!
