The Royal Hotel in Russell Square of Yesteryear
This has to be the coolest thing to fall from between the pages of a book in quite a while here at Callum James Heights. I assume it is a piece of letter paper from The Royal Hotel. The eagle eyed will note that as well as photos of its own rooms, The Royal includes a photo of the "Turkish Baths - adjacent". Today, if you step out of the tube station at Russell Square and walk towards the square itself, the is still a decorative mosaic panel in the pavement saying "Turkish Baths" and an arrow to point the way.
UPDATE: Thank you to anonymous in the comments section for pointing to another online photograph of the same view of the turkish baths below here at the Victorian Turkish Baths website.
