I've seen footed tubs lots of times. Most of the time they've been fitted with new plumbing and the main attraction is the feet. Sorta like this.
But this old tub had plumbing that I didn't understand. I just had to take a better shot at the fixtures.
Waste? Why did that thing say waste and what did it do? Looks like great old copper or brass fixtures that probably date back to the early 1900's. I took another shot.
That's funny. Activerain just turns my picture on the side? And I tried to put it on two times. So turn your head sideways and see if you can explain to dumb little me why this thing that is supposed to be putting water in the tub says "Waste."
