Science Snapshot: Neptune’s Daughters

Above: Decorative stained glass featured on the ceiling of the men’s bath hall inside the historic Fordyce Bathhouse in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The glass was put in by the Condi-Neal Glass Company from St. Louis in 1914-15 when the Fordyce Bathhouse was being built. Titled “Neptune’s Daughters,” the stained glass figures are celebrating the god of water (rather appropriate for a bathhouse).The Fordyce Bathhouse is part of the Hot Springs National Park. About an hour from Little Rock, this is a great day trip and an opportunity to explore some unique cultural and natural history. I’m counting this as a “science snapshot” due to the earth science and environmental connections with the natural hot springs in the area! (That hot springs were a welcome element on a slightly chilly day.)
