With a much larger crowd than expected (16 people!!!) the Trial San Francisco Loo Tour kicked off last Saturday. The tour wound it's way from a green street toilet by the Ferry Building to Union Square.
At this point it is looking like the tour will naturally divide into two routes. One along the piers, focusing on toilets, water politics, sewage and plumbing. The second in the inner city focusing on politics of space, gentrification, public toilet facilities, and what it means to have (or be denied) the right to a safe clean toilet.
More on both these journeys anon. In the mean time, here are some shots of the tour in action.
