Ballsbridge, Dublin this afternoon.
Soon there will be nowhere left to go.
“The closed “public convenience” at the junction of Anglesea Road and Merrion Road, across the road from the RDS. One of 70 public toilets, many having been built over a 100 years ago, that once operated in Dublin, stretching from Harolds Cross to Howth, including areas like Mountjoy Square, Glasnevin, Sandymount, Terenure, Dolphin’s Barn and Infirmary Road. These relics of a different time have a long history, their journey from use to disuse reflects how Irish society has evolved over the past 100 years. In the Ireland of the late 19th century not every home had an indoor loo – or even a toilet at all. This location was put up for auction by Dublin City Council last year but is now being demolished….”
