Located outside Elstree and Borehamwood Railway Station on the north-western fringe of today’s Greater London. The building was originally a Baptist chapel, built in 1894. It was converted into the Gem Cinema in 1914 with seating on wooden benches. It was operated by the Neptune Film Company, who had a film studio nearby. The Gem Cinema closed around 1917.
The building was then converted into offices used by the Council for collecting rates & rents. The local Council then converted the building into a public toilet, with entrances for men & women. It was closed in 1996, and the building was scheduled for demolition. However, after laying empty for two years, it was converted into a flower shop, named Eau de Toilette. Many fixtures and fittings are still inside the building from its use as a toilet, and it contains an operational disabled access public toilet.
