Probably for once, been where no camera has been before! Blackpool Town hall gents toilets. (Well it is on the heritage trail!) They are absolutely wonderful. Leaded glass, glazed tiles and polished wood. 110 years old plus a bit. The last time I've met toilets this magnificent was in a school in Leyland doing teaching practice. Shame the school was pretty ordinary (Sue, Sue, Sue.......)

|The mens' toilets. These are on the first floor.|
Wood panelling and 2 sorts of tile. Modern handbasins though.
Suspect the chrome plumbing is new(ish) too.
But it sets of the original work really well!
|Definitely the original standups|
White porcelain- immaculate!
|The mens' sit down. A single chamber with stained glass door.|
Does it get better than this?
The memorials in the entrance hall are really interesting.
Well it is 110 years old so it does qualify as an artifact. Who says there aren't decent toilets in Blackpool?
