Monday 3rd August 1846

“The baths and wash-houses for the labouring classes in George Street, Euston, opened this day. (Cold, shower, warm and vapour, and family baths. Wash-houses – two hours use of tubs, hot water and wringing machine, mangle, drying closet, irons and ironboard etc at charges exceedingly low for encouragement of cleanliness). The New Metropolitan Theatre is to be forthwith erected on a plot of ground on the east side of Leicester Square, formerly the site of Jaunay’s Hotel.”
