"I remember seeing public drinking fountains
in Inverleith Park and Victoria Park. I expect that, at one
time, they would have been a feature of many of Edinburgh's parks.
There used to be a public drinking fountain on
pillar that supports Greyfriar's Bobby - and a circular basin lower down,
surrounding the pillar, for dogs to drink from.
"There used to be urinals:
- underground at Tollcross, close to
where the clock now stands.
- underground at the Grassmarket, close
to the junction with West Bow
- underground, beneath the pavement in front
of Register House at the East End of Princes Street. I remember
these being large, and remember walking over the glass tiles set in the
pavement that let in light to the urinals.
