Great seat map, they don't make 'em like that any more
Yes, looks like two stewards had the pleasure of sitting on the dunny during take-off and landing. The other two had nice seats up front. But I believe the lavs on those good old aircraft were more spacious and more "powder-room looking" than today's lavs.
Safety regulations were probably less strict during take-off and landing back then. Now, bigger exits must have at least one FA sitting close by during critical phases of flight.

I know some of the senior Braniff hostesses used to talk about having to sit in the lavs for take off and landing on the DC-7. They said passengers would turn around and stare and they would just smile and wave (and mumbling unrepeatable language under their breath).
