The oldest flush toilet in TorontoPosted: July 2, 2016
This is the oldest indoor flush toilet in Toronto!
I took a tour of Colborne Lodge in High Park today; my guide told me it was installed by surveyor & engineer John George Howard around 1860 and remains complete with original wallpaper & toilet roll holder. Even more fascinating is the bathroom was built behind a secret door, camouflaged to look like it was part of the wall, because back in those days indoor toilets were thought to be unsanitary. Guests didn’t even know the room existed.
