Description:
[EN] Before the advent of affordable washing appliances, laundry was usually done in purpose-built wash houses. This is a place to post the locations of these public wash houses located around the world.

[FR] Un lavoir est un bassin public alimenté en eau détournée d'une source ou d'un cours d'eau, en général couvert, où les lavandières lavaient le linge. L'utilisation des lavoirs a été progressivement abandonnée au XXe siècle.
