The Old Pump Room, Bath

Victorian picture showing fashionable visitors to the Old Pump Room, Bath, in the 18th century. A gathering of smart men and women chat in the large panelled room. The men wear three-cornered hats, long coats, breeches, stockings, boots and buckled shoes; the women have powdered hair, large hats, lace caps, and dresses with fichus. Also visible are a sedan chair, a poodle dog, and a maid in a mob cap dispensing the waters.
