I wonder what year it dates to? From memory we used to have a lot more of these around Melbourne when I was a child, I thought they were little garden sheds. I think they were all painted either green, or black. Anyone else know?
No, but there's still a little men's toilet outside the former Magistrates Court, RMIT Building Number 20 on LaTrobe st.
I remember back when Melbourne had the commonwealth games, there was an article in The Age I think saying that all of the public toilets in Melbourne had been closed as a cost cutting exercise, as a way of stopping junkies using them or to stop them being used as meeting points for um, after hours activities. Apparently there are a few underground ones still there but with the openings closed off. The one I can think of is on Russell St outside the Greater Union theatre, it has a piece of sculpture on top now.
There are some nice photos of Sydney in there. I lived in Sydney for a bit a decade ago, I couldn't stand the mess of roads and poor suburban planning. 10 years on and it seems Melbourne has become just like Sydney...
