Washroom, the inside out!



Everything is done in these outdoor washrooms, food washing and preparation, washing clothes and washing self. The small taps on the wall usually have locks on them to stop other families using your water, the absence of a loo/s shows this family is in residence 🙂 Image taken in the disappearing lanes of Shanghai China.

    • Its interesting because these lane houses are being swept away and replaced by apartment blocks with all the modern western amenities but many of these residents don’t want to move because its their home, their culture and where families communicate and share traditions.

  1. An organic community that has grown and adapted….to be replaced by little boxes…..it’s clear that some aspects of progress are not progress at all. A great record of a way of life, Mark.
