As a follow-up to our earlier post about the best and worst public washrooms in Ottawa, check out this interesting collection of photos of public "comfort stations" in Ottawa.
It's from the Urbsite blog, and the photos include this note: "Contemporary concerns about safety and sanitation have made the public convenience a rare avis in today's cities. Most of the examples in this post have been walled up and closed. This post isn't about not finding a place to go, most just happen to be sealed. It's a survey of 100 years of a small building type."
