I found this frankly shabby looking lav in a pub called The Crooked Billet in Clapton, a few weeks ago now. There was of course, no toilet roll...and i do remember slipping in there and nearly hitting the urinals head on. There's not a great deal to say...as you can probably see! The tank was up high and wall mounted - a design classic of the highest order in my book. They just don't make them like they used too (especially not with the wonderous crustations that thing had formed!!)...but the bog was a little newer so exitement levels leveled off rather quickly. Yes, i was THAT in awe of a wall mounted tank.
Anywho, the pint was flat and the locals weird, and luckily i need never go there again. Give me an amen to that....

Amen, this toilet is rather grotty Danny, grottier than the woodwork one In my opinion!

Wow! That toilet has a bell siphon not a normal, can you get a video of it flushing? I'd love to see one of these flush again I've only ever flushed one of these bell siphons before.

"Do we know what a siphon is yet?"
That made me lol ...

Anyway, a siphon or syphon has something to do with gravity, hmm how to put it. Well as water is pulled down it pulls more water up the tube and down. I can't explain it very well. Maybe wikipedia has it...

NOTHING TO SEE HERE :O said...

I think i know what your saying here though..
