Thanks Jerry. There are only a couple of underground toilets left. there used to be quite a few. These are not too bad, generally kept fairly clean, and the babychange facility in the middle of town does get a bit of use.

Goot shot Rafael. It's definitely not something I have seen before. Gives a hole' new meaningto the word"outhouse" for this ole' West Texas boy. I wonder what their thinking was when they installed those? Did they just need public rest rooms with no place to put them?With the architecture dating the time periodtheyprobably did not required public rest rooms in all the buildings then.

Not sure Don. Most of the ones melbourne had were on the pavements and down stairs, or in the median strip and downstair, but these ones were part of the building. Perhaps teh fact that it is the town hall (ie city government) meant they felt the need to design them as part of the building. The only other one left to my memory is outside the old post office, all teh rest have been demolished.

Interesting. We have a few park field houses that have facilities that could fit right in with these. However, our signs are not in near as good condition.
