Two members of a Gentleman's Club begin a conversation over a copy of the Sanitary World and Drainage Observer. The discussion turns to where `relief' may be obtained after drinking quantities of tea or lager when walking through the streets of London. We are told that the `places that have no attendants afford excellent rendezvous to people who wish to meet out of doors and yet escape the eye of the Busy.' (police). The book could be read at as an entertaining, straight forward guide to London's public conveniences but yet to our more sceptical eye it is patently a guide to where men could meet like-minded men in an era when homosexuality was illegal. It remains a classic whether taken at face value or not. This title is one of the first on the Muswell Press LGBT+ list launching in Autumn 2019
