historical toilet provider "Madame Toilette"

Review with Madame Toilette

As part of the ceremonial inauguration of the lavishly restored Bismarck Fountain and the new construction of the Jena market toilet, "Madame Toilette", a toilet attendant in period costume, appeared to give a cultural and historical outline of the importance of toilets in public spaces.

The toilet provider is a mobile toilet attendant who, clad in a huge cape, a bucket of residual water and a pot, offered a mobile opportunity to relieve oneself in the 17th century.
