Tiled Hospitals.

Beaver Falls, PA: The Associated Tile Manufacturers, 1925. First edition. Staplebound Wraps. Quarto, pp. 31, illustrated with b/w photographs. Very Good. Item #21655

There were sanitary advantages to using tile in hospitals in the 1920s: they were waterproof and easy to clean, they were resistant to staining and abrasion; and they were attractive and economical to use. There are many photographs inside hospitals showing tile use in the operating room, public ward, delivery room, kitchen, restrooms, corridors, and more. Very unusual; we haven't had this title before.

Price: $95.00
