At Your Convenience: A Lavatorial Walking Tour
The Royal Society of Arts/ John Adam Street
Pause for a moment here at the end of John Adam Street.
Down at the far end you can just make out the headquarters of the Royal Society of Arts, who have been so involved in the advancement of public toilets throughout the years. It is thanks to their keen watch that we have the figures for the Great Exhibition, and that efforts were made after that time to improve the state of London’s Loos. I’ll tell you a bit more about them later on.
Carry on walking up the hill. See the steps in front of you leading down into the underground? Walk to the top and meet me there.
