I've noticed in the GotA book several pictures of the bath faucets, which were both hot and cold salt and fresh water. Does anyone know which set of the two was salt and which was fresh? They're both two very different sizes, which I would imagine was to differentiate the sets.

Lee:

The large faucets filled the tub with hot and cold salt. They are of large diameter to fill the tub quickly.

The small faucets are for the fresh water shower head, only found in suites, not the public bathrooms.

If you were taking a bath in a salt water only tub, the steward would have left a pitcher of fresh water behind for the final rinse to get the last of the salt water off.

Bill,

I wondered about that! I know if I bathed in salt water I'd wouldn't feel clean until I rinsed the salt off.

Thanks for the info.
