Great Urinals of the Pacific Northwest #17


Artist Jim Woodring presents Great Urinals of the Pacific Northwest #17.
These sarcophagus-sized pissoirs are just two of the many alluring aspects of Centralia's beautifully-preserved Olympic Club Hotel and Theater Brewery. The porcelain on these receptacles comes nearly up to to man's shoulders, imparting a certain sense of unwanted security. So enchanting are they that Thomas Churchill gave 'em a shout-out in his book Centralia Death March.
