EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the elegant world of a French bathroom in 1906, as depicted in this photograph from Mary Evans Picture Library. The image captures a moment of daily life, as a chambermaid assists her mistress in the intricately designed space. The bathroom, a far cry from the modern conveniences we know today, is an elaborate display of early 20th-century luxury and innovation. At the heart of the room lies a large bathtub, surrounded by ornate tiles and adorned with golden faucets. Nearby, a shower stall, complete with multiple showerheads, offers the option for a refreshing rinse. A bidet, a common feature in European bathing traditions, sits to the side, adding to the room's opulence. In the corner, a loo, or toilet, completes the essentials for a complete ablution. The chambermaid, dressed in her uniform, carefully helps her mistress into the bathtub, ensuring her comfort and privacy. The presence of a geyser in the room indicates the use of hot water, a luxury that would have required significant effort and expense during this time. The water supply system, a marvel of engineering, allowed for the indulgence of lengthy baths and invigorating showers. This photograph offers a glimpse into the history of bathing and the evolution of bathroom design. It highlights the importance of personal hygiene and the role of servants in maintaining the daily routines of the wealthy. The intricate details and elegant design of the space serve as a reminder of the grandeur and sophistication of the past.
