Birmingham's missing Victorian urinal

Birmingham blogger Andy Mabbett is in search of a piece of Victorian ironwork that once served as a urinal the city.

He writes, “In late 1986 and early 1987, to make way for the construction of the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, a number of older buildings had to be demolished, and entire streets disappeared.

“On one of those, Edward Street, was a cast-iron street urinal. This was a listed structure: despite its mundane function, it was an impressive and decorative piece of Victorian engineering.”
