Too Cool for School

It seems like only yesterday we were bundling up in boots, wool hats and scarves; now, with a few days of freakish near-ninety-degree temps, it's flip-flops and tank tops. I wouldn't go so far as this harem-panted 'modern princess' did in 1955 [although I do covet her pointy-toed slippers] to keep cool, though. Surely the suite of bath fixtures—particularly the tub, with its built-in seat—would have provided a more modest way of beating the heat.
