The bathroom 2

As promised here are some pictures of the bath that my brother has literally unearthed while stripping out the old recording studio. We know the recording studio was there since the 1950s and the bath has probably been covered since just after the second world war. The bath takes up the whole room and originally had a fire at one end with taps all around the far wall. It wasn't particularly deep but I can just about imagine it, with the light coming through the giant glass ceiling lantern, steaming hot water, tropical plants everywhere...

They are going to try and see if they can incorporate it into the design and the renoovation but it requires a great deal of imagination and in places it is quite damaged. The worst that will happen is that it will be covered over again.
