Just reading though the new street thread and saw some old underground toilets nicknamed "Slipper toilets"

Is there any pictures of these while they where still toilets?

Cheers

A couple from my blog post of what was exposed. Will have a look for pictures of it in use.

Thanks for the pictures. I heard that these were fine Victorian toilets and were huge.

They were sealed off as there was a lot of undesirable activity of the sexual kind.

I have a thread on the silver slipped toilets on the midlands heritage forum. Little more info on there.

I clicked this thread because I read 'Sniper Toilets'. I am disappointed.
You'd still get shot at down here, however with a barrel loaded something else!

Fascinating pictures, have you any more? also is there any chance I can have permission to use them please?

yeah that was the one i meant, hmmm.... seems there is only half what I posted on that thread though. I'll have a roam around on my other PC tomorrow to get the rest of the stuff, and I'll pop it on here ;)
The content of the thread hasn't been altered, it was moved, that is all :)
