Mud baths. Women taking mud baths in the 18th century, watched by James Graham (died 1794), a Scottish medical fraudster. Bathing in mineral water and mud was prescribed for many types of ailments, though the rich and famous also used bathing houses as social centres. Graham's "earth- bathing" was one of a number of medical frauds that he carried out in London. He claimed that bathers could prolong their physical beauty by bathing at his establishment. Graham died insane in Scotland.
