Orient Express - original  washbasin design

The 1920 (30s) sleeper compartments on the Orient Express ooze European and design history. Hitler had one as a mobile brothel – if you believe some stories.

Each cabin has an original washbasin cabinet, having hot and cold running water – there is a little storage, mirrors and places to stuff your toiletries, all confined into a space smaller than a single wardrobe – economy of space and design, complete with soft towels and crisp linen.
