Urinal toilet in Le Havre

You Do Not See Many Of These Anymore

There aren’t that many of these to be found in France anymore, all replaced by high-tech ones. Do you even know what this is?

It’s a urinal, a men’s toilet. They used to have a lot of them spread around cities, but now they have been replaced by high-tech, self-cleaning ones, and for both genders.

This old one, the only one I’ve seen in a long time, is located next to the Saint Vincent church in Le Havre.

And  yes, it’s still being used.
