Spike Box (The way we live now)

The purple cast comes from the UV lamps which illuminate the Norwich Market toilets. The lights were put there to try and stop junkies from being able to find a blue vein to inject into. This attempt at stopping addicts from using the toilets for this purpose was, of course, a failure. Hence the need to place a spike box for discarded syringes in the facility. The pictograms of a razor blade and a safety pin are red herrings to sooth the worried feelings of mothers sending their children into the public conveniences.
