There seems to have been two Turkish baths in Pier Street in the early 1900s so it is not known if the advertisement transcribed below refers to Max Wilson's establishment or not. The owner may have changed, or the street number may have changed. Any further information from anyone with access to the appropriate local directories would be much appreciated .
