Photo Du JourWindsor

East Windsor Steam Bath

The other day, I was cruising around the Ford casting plant that is due to close, looking for a good spot to get a photo of it. Across the street was this mysterious little place.

There was a closed sign on the door, yet no listing on-line or in the Phone Book for this place. I have no idea if it is operational or if it is the Windsor equivalent of a Schvitz?

What is a Schvitz you ask? It is a Jewish Steam Bath. This is located two blocks east and a half block south of where the East Windsor Synagogue was located.

If you want some information on the Detroit Schvitz, there is a good link here and here.
