This picture was submitted by an independent contributor. He writes: "This public urinal is located right in front of the old court house on Prinsengracht, the outermost of the four historic canals that encircle the city centre. It is just a few steps away from Leidsestraat, one of the major shopping streets in Amsterdam. It is a very unique construction made of virtually indestructable cast iron that has probably been put here in the late 19th century. This urinal can be used by two persons at the same time, which may have a practical purpose... or maybe a more symbolic one: the two in one unit in front of the court house being a symbol of right and wrong? Please note the convenient bike stand right next to the urinal so that no time is wasted finding a place to park one's bike."
