There aren't a lot of photos of that particular bathhouse available these days (unless you count the ones where it's been destroyed by the tornado). At left is a nice one from the Lorain County Metro Parks website. (Here's a link to the portion of the website about Lakeview Park with a history of the bathhouse.)
Anyway, the back of the postcard is postmarked just a half-dozen days before the tornado, which struck on June 28, 1924. Kind of eerie, knowing what would happen in a matter of days.
Contrast the first bathhouse with this postcard of the third bathhouse (below) which we all remember so well.

Did you know there was a second bathhouse in between the one that was destroyed by the tornado, and the one we all grew up with? What did that one look like?
Stop by here tomorrow to find out!
