Hull – Nelson Street Toilets

I don’t normally feel the need to take photos of toilets and then upload them on-line, but I’ve made an exception here. These toilets were constructed in 1926 and they are now listed, such is their heritage. There used to be a charge to use them, but they’re now free and the attendant’s window has been closed off.

Very decorative. The toilets got some international acclaim when Lonely Planet decided to list them as one of the most important things to see in the UK. I’m not quite sure that I would have gone that far, but it’s impressive when public facilities survive undamaged.

A sink. Or as the listed building record notes with rather more details:

“Edward Johns and Co Limited, scalloped white and cobalt blue stoneware hand sink that is attached to the dividing W wall”.

How lovely.
