These days when you visit the bathroom, no matter where you are you are greeted with gleaming white porcelain toilets and wash basins. There are liquid soap dispensers so that hands don’t go where hands have been before them. The whole scenario is one of germ-free hygiene.
Not at this pub. Mind you I think that everything was no doubt as clean as a whistle but the flushing water probably came from an area of tea trees thus colouring the water brown. The constant dripping in the toilets led to those brown stains that once there become impossible to remove.
The oldy worldy metal basins gave character but not only were brown but also very rusty. There are people that resurface this type of equipment and the ones here could certainly have done with it. However, I loved it.It was never going to kill me. It gave it atmosphere that I thought worthy of not one but three photographs and Cee’s Odd Ball challenge was just the place for them.
