The drying racks at Whiteinch Wash-house photographed by Alf Daniel in the 1950s.

Whiteinch Baths and Wash-house was built in the 1920s by Glasgow Corporation at a cost of £67,000. There were two swimming pools, sixteen baths for women and thirty-one baths for men and a Turkish bath. The "steamie" provided forty-three washing stalls and sixteen washing machines, as well as these racks for drying wet clothes.
