16. I had originally doubted that these baths, built so soon after the first ones in the country, would look so un-English, but as a result of seeing part of a forthcoming book by Nebahat Avcıoğlu (due early in 2011), I have given the matter fresh thought and have come to agree that they probably did look more or less as the artist depicted.
