We're just about tripping over varieties of bottled specialty waters these days ... much to our own self-deprecating bemusement ... but our truly bonkers near-ancestors used to travel days & weeks to springs & spas around the world "to take the water".

Makes us look almost sane.

Here's a real photo postcard of the Tettuccio Spa in Montecatini IT.

Quote:
Aalder's Sanitarium. Small cottages capable of accommodating 75 persons have been built around a large bath house in the town of Calistoga. The baths will accommodate 125 persons. They are supplied with hot mineral water from a drilled well, and the water is circulated through radiators in the cottages. Dr. Aalder expects shortly to install a concrete swimming tank 150 feet long. Wells to supply water for this have been drilled.
