Conveniently Listed

26 Jul

I’m told that when these public conveniences were opened in 1926 it was unusual in that it was for use by both men and women. Women it was once said didn’t perspire they glowed and it seems they didn’t piss either. What tosh! Thankfully we don’t live in such times though women having to pay to pee while men go for free is a continuing scandal.. Anyhow these fine utilities on Nelson Street are in excellent condition with mostly original fittings and ornate decorations and now are a listed building: A Grade II-listed loo!

    Pay to pee? Surely not in a city of culture.

    You're right: it's a free pee in the C of C!
