Interior Battery Floating Bath
CSS Description
Stamped E. Stopff Interior of Battery Floating Bath. In the Jacob Riis collection at the Museum of the City of New York there is a similar picture of the East River Floating Bath, circa 1898. From the women's clothes and the uniform of the policemen at the right, this would appear to have been taken at about the same time.
