Technology at homeIn the early twentieth century, Elizabeth and George Barrett remodeled their house in New Ipswich, New Hampshire. Bathrooms were just becoming common in American homes, and Elizabeth and George chose this particularly elaborate shower.

Fully turned on, the shower would spray the bather from both above and the sides.
