This delightful painting, by a so far unidentified artist, shows two women relaxing after their Turkish bath at what was then known as the Drumsheugh Swimming and Turkish Baths Club. The Drumsheugh Baths Club still exists but the Turkish baths were discontinued some time in the mid-1970s and replaced by a gymnasium.
