  • they are just SO proud of that historic marker. Reminds me of the scene from A Christmas Story- What is it? Why, it’s a major reward!

    yeah, ok.

  • Had to do a double take here.

    Thought we had a modern rendition of the Love Toilet from SNL


  • those houses are tear down material and have that historical marker on them. lmao

  • I think it’s a toilet and bidet. You see that all the time in upscale bathroom re-dos.

  • @Marmer, It’s one toilet reflected in the mirror.

  • Almost, but not quite in Shadyside.

  • Some 20 years ago we were driving through the edge of Georgia on vacation. We stopped at a small service station for fuel and facilities.

    In the women’s restroom stood two toilets, side by side with no wall between the two.

    Fortunately, there was a lock on the entrance door.

  • I hate having mirrors next to the toilet. Please, let me remember when I had a young, nice, firm tush.

  • Aside from the bathroom (easily remedied) it’s a lovely property in a great location.
    I’m sure an overly rich person will tear it down.

  • Anyone know why the street is called 11th when there are not any other number streets in the neighborhood?

  • From Marks Hinton’s Historic Houston Streets (2006, ISBN 0974060399):
    This little street was referred to as ‘oddly named’ since ‘there are no other numbered streets for miles’ in Doug Milburn’s classic guide book Houston, The Last American City. However, early maps of Houston as well as Southampton Place indicate that Bissonnet, the street West 11th intersects just west of Montrose, was called Eleventh Street and started west of Main.
