Saracen urinal

The public urinal in Craignestock Street, Calton, c 1900.

This street was named for the local area known as Craignestock that was most famous for the brewery which John Clyde opened there in the 1770s. The street no longer exists.

The cast iron urinal was made at the Saracen Foundry in Possilpark by Walter Macfarlane & Co. It is conveniently located, with a pub on each of the adjacent street corners!
