Gentlemen's Public Urinal, St Crispins Road, Norwich
This public urinal is said to be the oldest surviving example of a prefabricated concrete urinal in the United Kingdom. It is thought to date from 1919. At that time it would have been just across the road from the entrance to the City Station and close to several large factories. It now has Grade II listed building status and received £27,000 in Lottery grant for its renovation. It is no longer in use for the purpose for which it was orginally built. Just another of the surprising and unusual features that make the St Augustine's ara of Norwich so interesting.
