6. 'Proposed Turkish baths'   Coventry herald   (4 Jul 1890).   Between 1888 and 1907, a Mr Archibald Reynolds James ran James's Turkish Baths in Albany Road, Wolverhampton, and it must be assumed that he and Francis James were related, though it is not yet known how.


  
7. The description of the baths is taken from two articles in the Coventry herald: 'Proposed Turkish bath' (4 Jul 1890) and 'The new Turkish baths' (12 Dec 1890)
