Street urinal

I think it's one of the last street urinal in Toulouse.
Hereafter an extract from wikipedia about the legacy of Vespasian, a Roman Emperor :
In modern Romance languages, urinals are still named after him (for example, vespasiano in Italian, and vespasienne in French[34]) probably in reference to a tax he placed on urine collection (useful due to its ammoniac content; see Pay toilet).
