Look at this toilet!

The other day we went to a local pub. It was a small, shabby pub and I avoided going to the loo as long as possible because, for some reason, I imagined it would be less than delightful.

When I went in though – look at this!!

There was an ashtray in one of the armrests and you pulled the ball on the one side to flush. Long time since I have actually literally ‘pulled the chain’!

  1. Also, it is not an ashtray that you can see on the armrest, it is for people to leave a coin before leaving. The money was used to buy candles which were put opposite the chain. Later when the candles got replaced by electric bulbs they used tthe money to buy toilet paper and cleaning products.

  2. I know a place that has the same toilets. It is a reproduction of old French toilets (you can notice that the writings are in French). They seem to become more and more popular these days.
    If you are interested in them you can check the site furnituresafe.com.
