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.

This washing pool is located in the picturesque gardens of the old La Purisima Mission near Pismo Beach. The Mission was relocated in the early 1800's after an earthquake destroyed the first. This wash pool is probably nearly 200 years old.
