WHEN the Victorian Turkish Baths website was started, a firm decision was taken to exclude any establishments outside the 'British Isles'. This was in no sense an attempt to apply a value judgment; merely that there would be more than enough work involved in dealing with the hundreds of baths in the four countries where this specifically Victorian version of the Roman bath originated.
Since then, many emails from outside the UK commenting favourably on the site and an even greater number of enquiries from 'abroad', suggested that establishments located outside the British Isles which come to our attention should, at the very least, be listed, perhaps as a starting point for other researchers who may like to join us.
So four additional pages have been included in the directory section of the site. They are, however, different from others in the directory in that, though there may continue to be occasional exceptions, it is not intended that any further information about the listed baths will necessarily appear.
No specific attempt is being made to seek out additional entries, or methodically attempt to indicate when they opened or closed. But information which presents itself serendipitously, or is sent by visitors to the site, will be added to the list 'as is'. For this reason, almost all dates should be treated as sightings only—unless specifically indicated otherwise.
