Reception area and ground floor plans

This part of the ground floor plan shows the reception area with the passage, seen at the top, leading from the original baths.

Bathers purchased their tickets through a window in the attendant's room at the end of the passage. Continuing into an area to their right, they removed their shoes and replaced them with felt slippers. Shoes and valuables were left with the attendant for safekeeping in his storeroom lockers, and light refreshments could be ordered for consumption after the bath. The bathers then passed through a horseshoe arch shaped entrance into the Terrazzo paved cooling-room (captioned Lounge on the plan).
