Out of order at O’Sullivans

Three clean, green urinals and their broken brother at O’Sullivans Bar in Crookhaven. It may not be the most southerly point in Ireland but this bar does lay claim to the most southerly pint ūüćļ


Mirror urinal at the Finkenkrug

It was my final night in Germany after spending the past three days with official Toilography model, Arne. We ended our toilet tour at the Finkenkrug in Duisburg which has 222 beers on their menu and this amazing urinal that is actually a mirror. When you stand on the platform a disco ball turns on & lights up the restroom:

Not only that, but there were separate urinals on the opposite side for bier, schnaps & wein and a basin¬†for the kompost! Germans are so organized ūüôā

Nuclear bunker

Here’s an interesting one: a bathroom inside a Berlin nuclear bunker built during the Cold War.

It can hold 3,600 people for around 2 weeks, which is around how long they thought it’d take for radioactive fallout to settle should there have been an attack on the city. There were 4 bathrooms built within the complex, each consisting of 14 urinals & 16 toilets. There were no toilet doors on the stalls – only curtains – to prevent anyone from locking themselves inside and potentially committing suicide. Neither are there any mirrors in the bathrooms – a further safety measure to prevent the use of glass shards as a weapon. If the city water supply or built-in filtration system was to fail, there was enough water storage for 2.5 litres per person per day.

Thankfully, the bunker has never been used for its intended purpose and it’s currently¬†part of the fascinating¬†Story Of Berlin museum tour. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Bertha’s old school urinal

An old-school monster of a urinal at Bertha’s in Baltimore’s Fells Point. What a bulky¬†piece of equipment this thing is.
