My father took us to this place in the late 1940s or early 1950s.
My brother and I had to sit outside in the car and wait for him and our mother.
But I did go inside to use the bathroom.
As you can read on the back of the post card below the words pointers and setters.
Those were the names on the restrooms for Men and Women.

Tuba Skinny at the Umbria Jazz festival 2015/16. Vincent van Hessen's po...

This is the band in Italy at the end of December 2015. Be sure and click on the video to enlarge it. Go to youtbe and be sure and read the great comments by the person who made this video. He was blown away by tuba skinny when he first heard them. So many of us know that feeling.
The first part is a sound check with no audience. Also they are dressed for the cold. The second part and song is to a full audience and they are dressed up just fine. Also the second part is one of the best videos visually speaking anyone has ever done of the band.
