One of a long-running series of advertisements for the K Y Century Thermal Bath Company which ran regularly in journals such as, in this case, the weekly Illustrated London News.
Just as early advertisements for the first Turkish bath to open in the country aimed to sell the Turkish bath to women on the basis that it was good for the complexion (it was, and is) and would help them slim (it would not, at least not for any significant length of time), so did the several manufacturers of portable Turkish baths take the same line.
