The Brighton Hammam, West Street:
cross-section of the building

Long Section
< Image: The Engineer (23 Jul 1869)

To the left of the image is West Street with the two entrances to the Hammam at street (ground floor) level. To the left, in the basement, is the chute for delivery of coal for the furnaces. Above, between the entrances, is the directors' board room. Behind this are the gentlemen's and ladies' waiting rooms with, next to the latter, the staircase to the women's baths.

In the centre can be seen the divans and upper changing areas, while on the right is the large hot room with two of the smaller rooms leading off it.
