Woman’s bathing costume, 1940-1950. Donated by Joan Muray

The upper part of a female bathing costume in the form of a loose-fitting camisole, slightly bunched at the sides, sleeveless and with a V neck. Made of strong material, it is blue with a white bow at the neck and shoulder.

It belongs to the set of accessories and clothing that were rented out to users of the Banys de Sant Cristòfol baths.

Located near Masnou station, this establishment was created in 1880 as a spa with bathtubs. From the twenties of the twentieth century they became sea baths under the direction of the Arisa family and, later, of the Muray family. They were in operation until 1961.
