Oudezijds voorburgwal

Remember that I posted a drawing of a public urinal somewhere in Belgium, thinking they are becoming extinct?
I found another one, in Amsterdam, on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal, next to the Oude Kerk (old church).
In the heart of the red light district.

I am told everyone calls them "de krul" (the curl), quite obvious that name.

Funny: there are two small statues on each side of the entrance, depicting a man doing what he has to do.

It was freezing when I drew this; I painted it in a nice warm café a few minutes later.
