Parisian Sanisette

We'll, here's a modern version of the historic vespasienne of Paris.  The nifty sanisette.  This is the nicest coin-operated public toilet I've ever encountered. When you've been schlepping all over Paris and your dogs are barking, there's no better site. And at only 0.30 euro is a bargain as well.  Only problem is there can be a bit of a cue. Fine French cuisine is not the only thing that takes time.

After you deposit your coins the door opens automatically and then closes behind you. You take care of business and then wash your hands.  Press the exit button and viola! The door will then close behind you and the unit self-sanitizes itself by steam cleaning.  Pretty impressive for a public toilet and a far cry from the original.
