"The Last Vespasienne in Paris!"

Jump to last reply

Once not long ago it seemed that public urinals for men - called vespasiennes - a name taken from Emperor Vespasienne who was responsible for creating ancient Rome's public urinals, were everywhere.

And now I am shocked to hear that there is only one left? (See You Tube) - but I could not catch where this icon is - anyone know?

Thanks

Amsterdam still has many public urinals like these - metal things with whole at eye level so you can see out and kind of feel like your urinating on the street!

Any other cities with these type of vesapsiennes?
