Either this plaque is a joke or there is something special about the toilet. Perhaps this was the first of this style of toilet in the City? Plaque composers really need to think more about how posterity will receive their words.

Site: Toilet opened - Aldgate (1 memorial)

EC3, Aldgate High Street

All the other public toilets in the City  - but we doubt any of them boast a plaque.
