The bathroom

Ian is going over to my brother's place tomorrow to see if we can use any of the wood that they have stripped out from their building. In the process of stripping out one of the rooms they have uncovered the original hydropathic bath. What is currently the recording studio was a squash court and the anti-room with its big glass lantern in the ceiling was a big bath house. Given the history of the building (artists studios) I like to think of it as the prototype of the San Francisco bath houses! I will try and post a picture of it when we go over there next.

What is hydropathic - is it a personality disorder involving water?

Actually, don't know but have just seen it written as such! Think it is just a posh word for hot bath!
