John Maskelyn, an English stage magician,
invented the pay toilet in the late 19th century. His door lock for London toilets required the insertion of a penny coin to operate it, hence the saying - to "spend a penny".
Paris, in particular, established many of them, and today the streets of the city are forested with self-cleaning coin-operated booths.
The first pay toilet in the United States was installed in 1910 in Indiana, but in the 1970s, pay toilets came under attack in the United States, from feminists as well as the plumbing industry.
The argument was that they discriminated against women because men could use urinals for free whereas women always had to pay a dime for a toilet stall in places where payment was required.
By 1980, most all of the pay toilets in the USA were banned.
