Bath Tubs Gain in Palestine – Water to Fill ’em is Problem

Download PDF for this date

Native antipathy to bathtubs is being overcome and they are fast becoming standard equipment throughout the Near East. The only trouble is that frequent there isn’t enough water to fill them.

A Haifa firm, the Palestine Foundries and Metal Works, is turning out tubs at the rate of 10,000 a year and is confident that there is an ample market for them.

The bathtub industry is forging ahead apace, now that a price war which disrupted the market in Palestine has been brought to an end by an agreement of the International Bath Association, the trade cartel, which gives the Palestine concern preference in the Holy Land and Syrian markets.
