Cool thread. I think we use to have public baths here in Columbus, but I'm not sure where in Columbus.

Nice Pics, thanks for contribution.

It is interesting to know that some of those baths were active in Iran before the Islamic revolution, this pic shows the Iranian actress Nuri Kasrai inside a bath in Shiraz in a movie:

The most famous and mysterious bath in Iran was Sheikh Bahai Bath in Isfahan, the bath derives its principal fame from the story that its water was heated by a single candle which never needed renewing.



As you read here, It is believed that the reason for the constant warm water was due to the particular construction of connecting pipes from the sewage system which enabled the extraction of energy in the form of gasses such as Methane which in turn manifested themselves as heat.
