Ironmonger Row Turkish Baths in London:
the shampooing room,
in the 1930s and in the first decade of the 2000s

Male shampooer in the 1930s Shampooing-room in the 21st century

The male shampooer hard at work in the 1930s and the male and female managers hard at work 70 years later—the shampooing slab is the same. (Well, it's the opposite one actually, but the point is made.)*

* With apologies to the hard-working managers who are probably relaxing here for the benefit of Islington Council's photographer.
