Foreword by Billie Tsien. Duotone photographs, thoughtful sketches, and detailed watercolors.

Outlines the history, politics, health, water technology, and social background of the lavoir, the communal washhouse that, until a few decades ago, was the central gathering place for women in many small villages across the French countryside.

Also describes an important architectural type worthy of our study, admiration, and protection.
