Upper William Street

Known as the City Theatre Toilets and by some other less than complimentary names, this public convenience in Upper William Street was a landmark for many, many years. Every Saturday entertainers used to ply their trade there. Many will remember flame throwers, sword swallowers, all sorts of entertainers trying to make a “bob” on a busy Saturday morning. There were several public conveniences in the city up to a couple of decades ago. There was one in Reeves’ Path, one in Honan’s Quay, one in Bank Place as well as one in Mount Kennett. All have long since been demolished.
