Health Improving 100 Years Ago

Posted on May 23, 2013 by team

This is how people used to improve their health 100 years ago under St. Petersburg. Quite different from how we do it today, right?

Body wraps and rubdown.

Children riding donkeys.

Booths for washing.

Seaside recreation and retreat centre.

    Looks a lot like the old Kellog’s sanitarium.

    The booths are not for “washing” really. They’re for the women to go down to the water.

    The booths (on the wheels) would be up on shore. The women would get in and change. (not wanting any man to see them in their swim suits). Then they would be pulled down to the water, and the women would exit out the back (in the water) and splash around a little bit, then they would get back in and change and be pulled back on to shore. That’s why the wheels.

    Never having to expose themselves to prying eyes.

    Far different from today’s thongs eh?

    Nice pics.

    Some playground though. On the left very high steps and a small plank to walk across, no thanks.
