We are looking for a shower-hose attachment for an old
bathtub (circa 1930's). We tried looking in hardwares and
"Home Depot" and "Lowes" but could not find it.
Perhaps someone w/experience could lead us to a traditional
Plumbing store who still carries this type of old shower-hose attachments? I will send a photo of the old bathtub where
the water source originates if the plumbing store requires. The water source is round and approximately 3".

The problem with attaching a hose to a tub spout (yes you can get them ) is there is no provisions for preventing back siphoning and therefore against modern day plumbing codes

What I would suggest is hire a licensed Master plumber have her or him look into the possibility of replacing the tub spout with one that allows for a hose attachment with a built in diverter

I did this in many Manhattan apartments that were built in the early 1920's
