  5. Derelict Toilets of the UK, 2013-2018

    Damn i'd love to sit on that, for days
  6. The Derelict Toilet. AKA the Lavatory, Loo, WC, Crapper, Khazi, Bog, Dunny, Shithouse, John, Cack-Laboratory, Latrine, Little boys room, Ivory throne. An obsession I didn't realise I had until I was reviewing my pictures after visiting St. Johns and counted 33 images of toilets in various shapes, sizes, and stages of decay. I reviewed photos from previous explores and the toilet image content ratio was hovering at around 15-20%. Like watching the first series of breaking bad in two evenings, or smoking crack, the addiction had crept up on me and by this time it was too late, I was hooked... From that day forth, I can't help myself and actively seek out these attractive ceramic recepticles. Sometimes I find a lonely toilet, tucked away in an abandoned asylum and I've been overheard saying things like "there there" and "It's OK daddy's here". It has taken a long time to sift through 1000's of photographs in my dropbox but I'd like to share some of these with you. My high points have included the multitude of toilets at Severalls and St. Johns, Low points being only able to find one at Sleaford Bass Maltings and worse still, NONE at Wolverton Works. Please share your own toilet finds below, I'd love to see them The History We each spend three years of our lives on the toilet. A toilet is a plumbing fixture used for defecation, urination, and barfication. Modern toilets consist of a bowl fitted with a hinged seat and are connected to a waste pipe where waste is flushed. The Englishman with the unfortunate surname, Thomas Crapper, often gets credit for inventing the flushing toilet, and he undoubtedly was a major player in its development. His valve-and-siphon design was patented in 1891, and his company manufactured water closets that found wide acceptance all over England. In the decades preceding World War I his toilets imprinted with “T. Crapper Brass & Co., Ltd." inspired a generation of young American soldiers stationed in England during World War I, and they returned to America with a new slang term for the relatively new household fixture. Here are some of my favourite Ivory delights... Where it all began... St.John's Asylum, Lincolnshire. 1. 2. 3. 4,5,6. Severalls Hospital, Colchester. 7. 8. 9. 10.

(visited here the day before it got torched) 21. Intrigued by this half-toilet half-human hybrid 22. Unfortunately passed away due to smoke inhalation in a recent fire. RIP.
