Copper Tub Update

I remember reading about a copper tub somebody posted a few weeks ago.
Then I went to Calico Ghost Town and saw one just like it in a museum there. Got a couple of pics. The wood around the top was still in good condition and looked like teak. dated 1870s.
The one on the right is a Chinese wooden tub and the one on the left is a sit down type
(whores bath).

Re: Copper Tub Update
