Victorian Turkish Baths Picture of the Month for May 2010

Poster advertising the hot-air baths at
Glossop Road and Broadfield Road, Sheffield, 1950s

< Source of image currently unknown

The bottom of the poster, which is not visible in the above image, seems to imply that each of these types of hot-air bath was 'available at Glossop Road & Heeley Baths'. But in fact only Glossop Road had Turkish baths; the Heeley baths at Broadfield Street were Russian steam baths. The poster probably dates from the middle of the 1950s.
