So I was pleased when John Casey sent over three photographs from a trip to Southport.
To the casual observer they are just three pictures of the gents in a shop.
But to John and to me and I suspect many others the three images take you back in time.
Likewise the doors to the lavatory will be made of a material which is lightweight with a universal catch making it easy to operate.
But here in Southport they do things differentlty.
And I can still remember a time before the modern metal box and towel were installed when instead there was a wooden bar from which hung a looped towel, which on very busy days would be all be wet.
Which in turn reminded me of the days in winter before central heating when towels always seemed to be damp.
