] they're not really "machines", but just a kind of wagon that was pulled up to the shore and served as a moveable changing room.
In the original Ghost and Mrs. Muir (the one with Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison) there is a beach scene in which Mrs. Muir is using one of these "bathing machines". I always wondered what it was called. Also, she was actually holding on to a rope (attached to the wagon) while she splashed about in the ocean. Was that part of the normal practice?
