A painting of the outside of the pump room in Bath described in Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey". The website on which I found the painting also includes an excerpt from the novel describing the empowering "female intimacy" that is present in the pump room.

‘In the Pump-room one so newly arrived in Bath must be met with, and that building she had already found so favourable for the discovery of female excellence, and the completion of female intimacy, so admirably adapted for secret discourses and unlimited confidence, that she was most reasonably encouraged to expect another friend from within its walls.’ Northanger Abbey
