Ever run into one? only one drain cast into it. Thought it might interest some.
That's one of the older ones. Almost every basement around here has an old concrete sink like that in it unless they've upgraded. I do a couple of replacements a month. No way do I try carrying them up the stairs. At one point in time I would bust them up and carry the pieces out in 5 gallon buckets, no more. I move them out of the way sliding them across the basement floor and tell the customer it's their problem.
Run into em' all the time..What's even funnier is when the customer wants to try and repair it
I have one of those going right now. The bottom is caving, and leaking and the right side has buckled and they put it back together with thin set. LOL. They're selling the house and don't want to replace it.
I've never seen a concrete one, but we have, in the exact style, some made of soap stone and some slate.

Hardly ever see them here. This is the only one I recall. Interesting how the drain is cast into it. At least to me. There's a normal circular drain in both sides, but just one outlet in the center/bottom.
a single or double concrete tub was in every house here at one time. Most have been replaced but still see a few every now and then. The repair of choice around here seems to be roofing tar. The tailpiece is always brittle and you never want to touch it. I'll cut the galvanized vent stack to clear the drain rather than try to drop the trap under one of those.
Changing out a water heater I bumped the rusted out leg with the hand cart. It fell over broke into 4 pieces
