Sweatin' to the Oldies

Three WHOLE cents? While we've been having a hamam-worthy heat wave this week [absolutely free, I might add], way back in 1899, the confident folks at Racine Bath Cabinet offered a Turkish-bath-in-a-box that comprised 'a tight, double-walled room, rubber coated inside and outside and fitted with a door...alcohol stove, vaporizer and face-steaming attachment included.'

Frankly, it sounds like a ride on the subway—only you could sit down.
