I have no idea, but this one looks to be of 1940s vintage (unless you know better), and some kind of a publicity stunt by the folks selling these fine plumbing fixtures. That gal has moxie and actually seems to be enjoying herself. I hope she did! It's amazing to think about all the weird-o sexist jobs women take just to put food on the table.

By the way, check out the overly-excited guy on the right. What's up with him?

That guy looks like he's never seen a girl before, let alone one in the shower!
