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.
Expanded Description:
[EN] On our travels on the French canals we have met plenty of old public wash houses (lavoirs). We found that many of them are very beautiful and were also curious to see how wash houses looked in other parts of the world.

In fact a French law enacted on 3rd February 1851, subsidised their construction to a value of 30% which could explain why lavoirs are so common in France.

[FR] Oui ! Qui se souvient des lavandières ? " Les hommes au bistro, les femmes au lavoir " disait-on ! Témoins des grands et petits moments de nos villages, les lavoirs évoquent le souvenir d'une époque révolue et rappellent le dur labeur de nos grands-mères. Inscrits dans le paysage depuis plus d'un siècle, ils font incontestablement partie du patrimoine de nos villages. En pierres, en briques, ou plus modestement en bois ou en torchis, ils méritent d'être conservés, bien préférables à tous ces hangars industriels que l'on construit ici ou là.

En effet la construction des lavoirs en France s'est accentué avec la loi du 3 Février 1851 qui vote un crédit spécial pour subventionner à hauteur de 30 % la construction des lavoirs.
