I found a French site which mentioned in passing that only two of the old vespasiennes remain in Paris. The rest were replaced about 1980 by Decaux "sanisettes", which I gather are more modern coin-op unisex facilities that are self-cleaning and completely without character. (Didn't resort to a translator, so may have missed something.)

Ah, progress. Haven't been to Paris since Le Grand Charles (De Gaulle)was residing in the Elysee Palace, and I'm not sure I'm in any hurry to change that. :(
