At the time of the Pentagon's construction, in 1941-42, segregation laws in Virginia, where it is located, required separate bathrooms for whites and blacks. Signs identifying them as such were never put up, probably because Pres. Franklin Roosevelt had banned discrimination in the federal government.
I found some stats on the Pentagon after seeing this thread and it appears there is a washroom for every 88 people. (284 washrooms for about 25000 workers). It also says about 4900 fixtures but does break them down by type, but with that number you probably don't have to go far to find another one if the washroom you first tried is full.
Not a professionsl tradesman, thanks for the work you all do for there rest of us and please forgive my uninvited entry into the discussion.
I lost my office in the Pentagon on 9-11-01, and some friends. Thanks to those who built the building and added all those extra walls for those "Latrines". The extra concrete saved a lot of lives.
