The hot rooms

View of the hot rooms looking towards the cooling-room. There were several different types of seat in the hot rooms. The encaustic tiles on the floors have been covered with long stretches of matting where there is heavy foot traffic. The hand-painted glass panels were a part of Bartholomew's house style. There is a push-bell on the table to call for an attendant, and a footrest at the bottom of the recliner.
