I recall when this building were Ladies and Gents toilets. However they have gone through a few changes over the years. Another comment on the internet believes they may have been a tramstop. Not sure trams ever went over any of the Blackpool bridges. I could just about buy into a bus shelter. They have been a variety of little shops over the years but they have never done well and ultimately gone down the plughole!
There are very few old public toilets left in Blackpool, most have been flattened, maintenance is a real issue.
|The road climbs to the crest of the hill then goes off to Spen corner. |
To the right the road goes to the Royal Oak pub and then to the sea front.
South Shore station is just to the left.
|I think these ornaments must have been added later, |
they don't seem weather battered enough to be original
|The concrete/stonework is in a poor state of repair,|
only a matter of time before they come down I suppose.
