Victorian Turkish Baths Picture of the Month for May 2012

Dr Stone's Turkish Baths: 274 Woodward Avenue, Detroit

Dr Stone's big ad

Dr Stone's advertisements do not indicate the price of a stay at his hotel and only sometimes, as in the page from a local directory (see below) does he indicate the price of a Turkish bath.

Directory advertisement

These baths opened in 1876, but it is not known when they closed. The directory was probably published in 1880.
