It is interesting to see the different signs that are put up in the washrooms of hotels and restaurants.
Some are very simple like these
The entrance for this one is a common one (for Men and Women) This was in California where we had brunch at the Cliffhouse. The type of art used here is from the early fifties.
This is from La Bularia, an eating place in Amsterdam. From the drawings, one can make out that it is a Spanish joint.
One that I saw in France
I don’t know where I clicked this but the braille letters at the bottom indicate that they have thought of the blind people too.
In case people can’t read the “Ladies” sign, there is a picture of a girl alongside it. The drawing of the girl is in Mario Miranda style, but not actually by Mario. This is at the Baga beach, Goa (Hotel Britto)
Talking of toilets, I found this feedback system installed in Singapore airport (Changi) very interesting. After using the toilet, you can give your feedback by just pressing a button. What a simple and effective way for instant feedback.
Like me, all must have pressed “excellent” as can be seen here.
Coming back to washroom, this is one sign which needs no description. Every Indian anywhere in the world will know the meaning of this. Clicked this in an eating place in the suburbs of Mumbai.
