Architectural detail

Look at the detailing on this piece of street architecture -

What might it be? A picture from a slightly different angle might help...

It is a cast iron gentleman's urinal! Formerly "the Gentlemen's facilities at Woodhall Junction Station", it is now in the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.

And here is a slightly different architectural detail - a ceiling in the Assembly Rooms in bath -

The gentleman's urinal looks wonderfully incongruous in front of those plate glass windows. What a wonderful construction it is, though.
I liked the incongruity, too. Mind you the whole museum has a rather eclectic way of putting things together...had I turned the other way there was a WW2 tank:)

I just thought, like you, that it was a wonderful construction.
