Spending A Penny.


Recommended Posts





Spending a penny is an english euphemism for going to the washroom, because for a long time the charge to enter a cubicle in the english lavatories was 1 penny.


Here are two 'emergency pennies' which I acquired from the Feathers Public House in the mid sixties. Only taken me 40+ years to post, but then the internet did not exist, along with cell phones etc. How did we manage!!!


Because they are still sealed I do not know their dates. I think it was between 1964-1966 when I frequented the Feathers.

Excellent pieces of lavatory history! :ninja:


Also very interesting to know that a collector in Canada has items that are from a pub just five miles away from where I am typing! ;)
