I need one of those signs for my office. Wherever did you find it? I wonder who gets to decide what is a nuisance.
In a Victorian housing development in Southwark, 2 up 2 down tenements built by the railway for it's workers.
There's another one of these signs on the wall of a church in Doyce Street, just off Southwark Bridge Road.I used to walk or cycle past it daily on my way into work at a studio in Rushworth Street, Borough. "Nuisance" was a Victorian euphemism for defecation in a public place.
My dad has an old sign which I always loved: "These conveniences are for patrons only. Cabmen, fishporters and idlers are not permitted to use them."Quite right too.
