Photogenic Convenience

A brick construction dating back to 1943 (ACC=Auckland City Council). Well maintained with simple tile work inside. No 594 Great North Road, Grey Lynn.

Pebble Mosaics, Huia Domain

Pebble Mosaics, Huia Domain

The only decorative element at the Huia Domain conveniences is a simple set of pebble mosaics by the outside shower – not that you would need much additional decoration in such a splendid place as is Huia Bay.…

Old Sandringham Conveniences

Old Sandringham Conveniences

Another art deco style toilet block bearing the initials of the Mount Albert Borough Council. While the facade looks quite attractive, the building is out of service, but never fear, a (less monumental) modern facility is close by.…
