Hi all, Newbie here.
I haven't been to the place, not experienced enough yet, but I'd thought I'd mention the old 'Silver Slipper' toilets have been uncovered at New Street Station.
They were uncovered on Friday afternoon as construction begins on the new John Lewis at Birmingham New Street.
In case you don't know what they are (other than being toilets) and what happened to them, here's a little bit on them-
February 1905 to April 1987
The Silver Slipper was a large Victorian underground public toilet, curved in shape. It was Birmingham's most notorious cottage for many years, until it was closed in the late 1980s. It got its nickname from a ballet supply shop opposite whose sign was a large silver ballet slipper! The whole area around Station Street was called the 'The Slipper' and was a popular haunt of rent boys and gay men looking for sex right up until the early 1990s.

There are other sites that mention the place, and speak of it quite fondly! Best not post them though, too much naughty stuff going on on those forums!
Anyhow, if anyone is going to take a look at the place, go in soon as it's going to be filled in in the next few weeks.
