Thank you to John Francis for sharing with us photos of a medal that belonged to his grandfather and Penguin member, E.W. Francis. The medal commemorates the opening in 1907 of the Lime Grove Public Baths which soon afterwards became our Club’s home for many years.
John’s father, Jack E.E. Francis, was also a member of Penguin in the 1920s or 30s.
