from Standard Practical Plumbing by Philip John Davies, 1885

“Fig. 509 and 510 illustrates a shut-up wall urinal for fixing in offices, and in places that will not allow of such apparatus being seen. . .”Lavatory and Urinal combined.  “These urinals are made to suit almost every kind of furniture, and are made left and right handed. . . .” – page 208

“There is a vast variety of urinals in the market, one maker claiming this, one claiming that, and the other claiming something else; but perhaps the greatest peculiarity is that nearly every one can make each other’s pattern, and this being so we may take it as an all round affair.” – page 205
