Bath House opening

The Bath House building, designed to put Rotorua on the international spa map, was opened on 13 August 1908 by the Prime Minister, Joseph Ward. The opening, which included a significant Māori element, was timed to coincide with the visit of a US naval fleet to Auckland. Many of the sailors attended, along with locals.
