When and where did gay bathhouses start popping up around the U.S.?

Like for instance if you were a gay man in New York or San Francisco in 1940, was it easy to go score some cock if you wanted it?

I always stopped over at J. Edgar Hoover's place. We drew the curtains, and Voila!!!

I think in those days there were bathhouses with a gay subtext.

Probably some of those bathhouses had a 'gayer' reputation than others.

Gays were cruising the Turkish baths as far back as 1900, if not before.

There was a lovely Turkish bath on board the Titanic.
