The selection of material included within this section has not been undertaken according to any other than purely arbitrary criteria. These pages are not the only ones dealing with the history of the Victorian Turkish bath.

In fact, most of the site should be of some historical interest, dealing as it does with people, companies, Turkish baths (in the Directory), and a number of wider topics which are more difficult to categorize.
