DUBUQUE TURKISH BATH ROOMS. Located at 449 Main Street at the beginning of the twentieth century, the business was operated by George Pilkington. Rooms were arranged to accommodate both men and women. Advertisements claimed that "a treatment at their (attendants) hands is sufficient to revive youth and give one a new lease of life." The attendants were claimed to be "unexcelled" as a cure for rheumatism, scrofula, and all impurities of the blood."
