    Default Vintage Photo of Horse Bathing -- Where is it?

    There was a photo which I believe I saw on CoTH and I would love to find it again, if anyone can help. The photo was of a large trough for bathing carriage horses in a large city. The trough looked like a road which dips down under an overpass, but filled with water. The teamster could lead his horses down the ramp and bathe them or refresh them, and there was at least one horse in the water in the photograph, which was black and white.

    Anyone know where this is posted? Mike Matson, maybe?

    I spent about an hour googling everything I could think of. You know how that goes, you get waylaid into other tangents. But I certainly found some nice images of horses bathing or being washed, both photographs and original art.

    So I'm bumping this up in hopes someone has seen this.

    Could it be the "Horse Wash", in Hull? I could only find one picture of it with horses in it and it's pretty small, down on the lower right here:

    Thanks, Canaqua, but it is not this one. The bath was in a city and as I recall, there was not body of water visible, except the water in the large horse bath.

    Checked shorpy and didn't find a walk in bath, but I DID find a horse shower and summer hats with unicorn-like horns at ephemeralnewyork

    Could this be it?

    Bit small, sorry.

    Edit- never mind. It's not a wash-

    A trip to the past: A rare black and white photograph of the great stallion Nearco being led out of his specially built underground bomb shelter at the Beech House Stud during the Second World War. Photo was taken by the famous equestrian photographer Anscomb. The image is known as THE ALL CLEAR, 1941.
