Oddest Royal Doulton I've ever seen ...

This one is a good find, even though the flush isn't up-to-scratch it still deserves to be on here.

I found it at Franks Italian Pizzeria, Kettering. The resteraunt is in an old terraced house which means ... old outside toilets! I walked into the ladies by accident and found this beauty.
Now that is an odd hole. Not even enough water to fill it. It's a Royal Doulton, a very old one too. The bowl was cracked, as you can see in this next photo of the logo.

That logo is on every Royal Doulton in this area, I've never seen any other.

Thi cistern looks like a Shires but usally they have logos. I think it was slightly worn out as there wasn't enough pressure to go round the whole rim of the bowl.
The flush isn't good but still a great find. Apologies for the yellow photos, my camera picks certain lighting up like this.

Enjoy the video.

QUAVAC (The Netherlands) has been the market leader of vacuum technology for wastewater disposal for decades. QUAVAC has patented this technology under the name Vacuflow®. Wastewater is transported to the vacuum station by means of aspirated air using negative pressure. Compared to the traditional natural gravity and pressure system sewerage methods Vacuflow­® has several advantages. It is easy in maintenance, environmentally friendly, easily expandable and blockage is impossible.
Moreover, Vacuflow® sewerage is often applied in certain situations where no other system is possible. Such sites include marinas, harbour, islands, rural areas and industrial areas.
