An old English euphemism for visiting this establishment was to 'go and spend a penny'. It's origins are due to the locks on the doors where you had to literally put a penny in a slot to open the door. The first public loos to put locks on the doors were outside the Royal Exchange in the 1850's. I guess how much "value" you get for your 30p is entirely up to you gentlemen!
