Please, I can't even begin to think about it and so I'll assume that you're pulling my leg! But I wonder what people did when kids or people above a certain age got up in the middle of the night to pee? If the public loos were not nearby, the washbasin, placed at a 'convenient' height as it was, must have been tempting.Yes, they were washbasins. However, some of the passengers might have regarded them as more versatile. Especially when stricken by 'mal de mer'...
Most likely it was just discharged at sea .I wonder what happened to the Titanic sewage. If anybody knows or suspects, I would be happy to recieve
There is a scene in the ca.1939 movie "The Grapes Of Wrath" where a little "Okie" boy and girl go exploring in what must have been a community toilet on the migrant campground. They pull the chain on one of the flush toiilets and the water begins to run and flush the toilets. The kids run out , screaming, afraid they've brokenMore than just tempting, Arun! There were people on that ship who'd never seen a flushing toilet, let alone used one. Chamber pots were an essential part of everyday life back then (and much later), and I'm sure there were at least a few passengers who were very impressed at the nicely mounted examples they found in their cabins. One thing I've discovered in my long life is the general principle that what can be done will be done.
Bastian, once again, I think this has been covered on the first page of this thread.And what happened with the seawage from the Titanic?
