OCEAN BATHS - Acrylic Desk Block

Merewether Ocean Baths, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia

With stormy conditions and good cloud cover, I headed to Merewether Baths hoping for a moody sunset. The stormy atmosphere gave way for something a little softer with the pastel colours in the sky. Still, it was great conditions to capture the Merewether Baths in their ocean setting.

The Merewether Ocean Baths were built during the great depression. They were completed in 1935 by unemployed labourers through a depression-relief scheme. The baths consist of two large rectangular pools with an overall dimension of 100 metres x 90 metres. They are the largest ocean baths in the state of New South Wales. Located just three kilometres from the Newcastle city centre, the baths have a long history as a popular swimming spot in Newcastle.

 Acrylic desk block size: 36cm x 18cm (3cm deep)


Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
