Machines for Men

Granville was also critical of the arrangements for the men's bathing machines.

"The gentlemen on their side are not less objects of curiosity at times; for many lacking courage after they have stripped to the skin, will stand on the outer steps of the machine, shivering and hesitating, their persons in the meanwhile wholly exposed, owing to the want of a hood that ought to project over the steps, as is the case in all decent sea-bathing places. No attempt has yet been made by the authorities to set this right, and the practice remains a stain on the gentility of the Brighthelmstonians."

So Granville was fairly critical of the town's sea bathing arrangements. However, he was more approving of its German Spa (Royal Spa at Queenspark) which claimed to synthesize on the premises the spa waters of Germany - for health drinking purposes.
