Electric bath in the Turkish Baths suite

One of three electric baths provided in the Turkish baths suite at the time of the liner's maiden voyage. Surprisingly, no attendant is to be seen in this image which was probably drawn before the room was in operation.

Such baths never became very popular with passengers and one of them was replaced by a dressing room when the baths were refurbished in 1928. (Neither the Titanic nor the Olympic ever had more than one electric bath.)
