History of the towel warmer
The radiator forms part of a central heating system whereby a boiler heats water, which is pumped through a series of pipes into a home to heat a room. A radiator would be placed in a room in order to provide more heat in that room.
As bathrooms were heated in this fashion, towels or articles of clothing were placed on the radiator to dry - hence, the arrival of the towel warmer. The 1920s saw the birth of the cast iron water heated towel warmer, commonly referred to as a "bath radiator."
