Double cubicles in the cooling-room

Closeup of the cubicle behind the pillars

These carpeted cubicles, photographed shortly bnefore the baths opened in 1895, are designed to house two couches, an occasional table and an ornate mirror. To the right of the left hand image can be seen a pile of fresh loin cloths. The view of the cooling-room shows the opposite end to that shown on the postcard published about ten years later. The tiles were manufactured at Jackfield in the Ironbridge Gorge by the Craven Dunnill firm, and these photos were included in the company's catalogue.
