Another one of the lost public lavatories

Now it was Andy Robertsons who suggested the idea of a bog for the blog and contributed two fine late 20th century public lavatories.

Since then quite a few other people have chipped in with ones that I had entirely forgotten.

The upshot I reckon will keep him busy for a while.

In the meantime here is one suggested by Steven Robertson.  Steven offered up a few but this one I recall vividly.

Like so many it was situated near a pub, in this case the Lloyds in Chorlton and stood in the car park.

Now not so long ago I went looking into the history of the place and I think this bit of open land was where one enterprising landlady opened up a set of tennis courts in the 1880s.

Long gone now, along with the public lavatory and the car park.
