Rob Derbyshire, whose actual name was John Henry Derbyshire, was born in Manchester in 1878. His father (also John Derbyshire) was the manager of Osborne Street Baths and then became Superintendent of Manchester City Council's Baths and Wash Houses Department. Mr Derbyshire senior played a key role in the construction of the Victoria Baths and the family moved when it opened in 1906 to the large Superintendant's flat.
