Erected in 1889, the New Private Baths were attached to the Grand Pump Room Hotel and offered a range of unusual treatments. Here, this lady is using a Four Cell or Schnee Bath, involving the use of electricity in conjunction with spa water. The patient watches nervously as the nurse switches on the current. From the collection at the Roman Baths.
