Whitechapel Baths (public), Goulston Square, AVhitechapel.
York Baths, 54 York Terrace, Regent's Park.
And many others.
Hot and cold baths of various kinds may be obtained at the
baths above mentioned at charges varying from Gd. upwards. The
Public Baths, which are plainly but comfortably fitted up, were
instituted chiefly for the working classes, who can obtain cold baths
here for as low a price as Id., from which the charges rise to Gd.
or Sd. for a first-class bath. Alost of these establishments include
swimming baths. Many of the private baths have most elegant
8. Shops, Bazaars, and Markets.
The Co-operative System.
Shops abound everywhere. In those business quarters which
are usually visited by strangers, it is rare to sec a house without
shops on the ground-floor. Prices are almost invariably fixed, so
that bargaining is quite unknown and unnecessary. Some of the
most attractive shops are in Regent Street, Oxford Street, Picca¬
dilly, Bond Street, the Strand, Fleet Street, Cheapside, St. Paul's
Churchyard, and Ludgate Hill.

cases, the dearest) shops in London. Besides shops containing the
articles usually purchased by travellers for their personal use, or
as presents, we mention a few of the large depots of famous Eng¬
