Photographer's Note

While browsing through the gallery, I came across one of Morac's latest photos showing funny toilets in Nantes, France. In his note, he wrote that it was the "International Toilet day" on November 19th, to remind us that BILLIONS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO TOILETS. LACK OF SANITATION KILLS 5000 CHILDREN EVERYDAY.
I then remembered this photo I had in my picture box! I hadn't known whether to post it or not, but Morac's reminder made me decide to do it!
As I was doing some shopping in Oxford street, I was looking for public toilets. I just went into a parallel street, which was far from being luxurious, and this is what I found! I couldn't believe my eyes how tidy and comfortable they were; that's why I took the photo.
Being French, I am ashamed to say I am not used to such well-kept public toilets. And if you look at the WS, well, the outside is just of a great style to be kept as part of the British heritage!
Oh! And they were free of charge too! Congratulations to the British!
And especially, let's hope that the developing countries will one day be all provided with a minimum of hygienic comfort!
