Victorian Turkish Baths Picture of the Month for March 2010

Mohawk Bath,Buffalo, NY:
Business card, end of 19th century

Mohawk Baths, business card

Virtually all we know about these baths is taken from this card, which is thought to date from the late 1890s. The baths remained open until at least 1930, when sulphur and electric baths were also provided.

Although no city is named on the card, East Mohawk Street is in Buffalo, NY, and the nearby Washington mentioned does not refer to any city of that name but to Washington Boulevard which crosses East Mohawk Street.
