c. 1900s: Bathing machines Chris August 26, 2012 1900-1909, Fashion & beauty 7 CommentsFavourited 549 times Add to favourites 7 Responses CatM August 26, 2012 These are adorable. I wish they still had a few around, I would love to take a little ride in one just to see what it was like. Must be terribly convenient for changing, too, peeling off the bathing suit and putting on dry clothes before you have to walk back across the sand to your next destination. Much better than trying to not be seen in the back of a car. Reply Mark August 26, 2012 I get the concept. A cabin on wheels that you can change in. But why are they ‘machines’?? Nothing mechanical about them. Reply Chris August 27, 2012 Wheels and axles aren’t mechanical? Reply Fernando August 30, 2012 9 & 10 are from San Sebastián, Spain? Reply Gerard September 3, 2012 Certainly looks like Donostia (being Catalonia, they prefer that to San Sebastian). Well picked. Reply Martin September 3, 2012 The 3rd pic is my home town Hastings, Identified by the castle ruins on the hill, the first castle built in England by William the Conquerer iirc. Reply catalunya lliure September 9, 2012 @Gerard Actually Donostia is in the Baque Country, not in Catalonia. I think you’ll hear about Catalonia soon.
