Toilet in the Cabin

"Brittila's" (KR S 699) första ägere överraskade omgivningen med ett tämligen frivolt dass. Han gjorde helt enkelt en midjehög avbalkning inne i salongen där man kunde förrätta sina affärer under kongenial konversation med övriga i salongen. Detta har dock nuvärande ägere korrigerat, och förlagt lokum till mera avskilda regioner.
