Darwin pee’d here; who else has?

One of the finest things in Burlington house, the home of the Geological Society of London, are these early Victorian urinals made out of superb marble.

Standing there, it is interesting to contemplate who else peed there, Darwin, Lyell, Sedgwick , Huxley, and so many others right up to the present day.
