2 Claims.
This invention relates to the Patent O?ice class
of “Supports, cabinet structures,” and especially
to the sub-classes “Room corner type,” “Knock
down type” and “With compartments, with,
drains”; and inasmuch as it is intended primarly
for use of shampoo operators, I choose to give it

charging water or other ?uid.

provision of inwardly curved wall-top-flanges I 3a,
best shown in Figs. 5 and '7, but indicated by dot

similar units respectively to other corners of the
room as business increases; displacing such simple
combinations (as Fig. 4) with more nearly com
plete ones such as in Figs. 2, 3 or 1; and ?nally,
in the same small room, in the center thereof,
assemble and combine all the devices shown in
Figs. 1, 2, 3 and 4; thereby providing for eight
shampoo operations simultaneously, in one com

provided with a suitable faucet i9 (Fig. 5), and
such faucet cooperates with the water-supply
pipe-sections for holding the shampoo unit

against the wardrobes when assembled in the ra

other features of the entire assemblage so as to.
provide a unified shampoo cabinet combination.
Of course, any appropriate means (not shown)
