The Ladies Room Door Art Series: Part Thirty-nine

Standard

From Becca,  Acme, a restaurant in Carboro, North Carolina (above) and the Baxter Arcade, also in Carboro, below.

From Pat, Fork in the Alley in Roanoke, Virginia.

Also from Pat, the doors at Toast in the Village Shopping Center near her home in Virginia.

 

Rachel found this photo on the door of the ladies room at the Jordan Lake Brewery in Cary, North Carolina. It’s Laurence Fishburne, who starred in the Matrix Triologies.

From Dawn, while on her book tour for her stunning new novel, The Mourning Parade, the “wildest bathroom I’ve ever seen.”It’s The Mediterranean Grill in Chicago at the corner of Madison and Lake.

 

From Jonna, the Ale House in State College, Pennsylvania.

From Carol, who hit the jackpot at Cowboy’s Firepit Grill in Lake Park, Georgia.

And from Chelsea, a peek into ladies rooms in Japan and Korea.

Chelsea writes: “While the majority of the images were pretty plain, the toilets themselves were very interesting! All of the toilets were electronic and had tons of buttons to press.  Many were bidets; in fact most were.  A lot had a fun privacy feature as well that you could press and it would play nice wave sounds.
     
With that being said–there were also the traditional ‘hole in the ground’ type toilets as well. Apparently these were used back in the day–very difficult to squat over from the few instances I had to use them.

The one of my feet  below shows the sandals they gave you when you went to the bathrooms in restaurants. You had to take your shoes off upon entering, and they stored them for you while you ate.  So the sandals were there when you had to use the restroom while at the restaurant.”

Thank you, Chelsea. Fascinating report.

That wraps up the Ladies Rood Door Art Series for 2017. Thanks to everyone who contributed this year. The series would be lost without you!

On to 2018…

  1. Good ones! A friend just got back form Japan and her advise is not to be in a rush because figuring things out takes time. That is corroborated by Chelsea’s pictures!
