sanitation (countable and uncountable, plural sanitations)

    • 1962 October, Brian Haresnape, “Focus on B.R. passenger stations”, in Modern Railways, page 249:
      To lovers of Victoriana it will not be necessary to enlarge on the original beauty of many [old stations], but to the modern traveller romantic nostalgia will not compensate for bleak, draughty waiting rooms, ancient sanitation, uncomfortable grimy seats and gas lighting; he is likely to prefer the comforts of a modern car on a winter's morning.
