Two toilet graveyards in one day

It’s been a great weekend for #abandonedthrones.

First were these three loos just around the corner from home, sitting in a heap with toilet-shaped styrofoam from the boxes of their shiny new replacements:

Then I saw another three-toilet graveyard at the side of the road, close to Mt Pleasant & Lawrence. RIP little guys ⚰️🚽

Abandoned on St Mary St

The first I’ve seen of hopefully many #abandonedthrones this season in Toronto, this guy was left for dead in the St Mary Street gutter. And in case you suffer withdrawals until I discover my next dumped dunny you should go follow @abandoned_thrones!


Toilet in a tree

Hey so my brother sent me this pic of a random toilet he found in a tree in an outback Queensland ghost town 😂🌲🚽

And as a bonus, here’s a loo in an abandoned house he found in the same town:


Nuclear bunker

Here’s an interesting one: a bathroom inside a Berlin nuclear bunker built during the Cold War.

It can hold 3,600 people for around 2 weeks, which is around how long they thought it’d take for radioactive fallout to settle should there have been an attack on the city. There were 4 bathrooms built within the complex, each consisting of 14 urinals & 16 toilets. There were no toilet doors on the stalls – only curtains – to prevent anyone from locking themselves inside and potentially committing suicide. Neither are there any mirrors in the bathrooms – a further safety measure to prevent the use of glass shards as a weapon. If the city water supply or built-in filtration system was to fail, there was enough water storage for 2.5 litres per person per day.

Thankfully, the bunker has never been used for its intended purpose and it’s currently part of the fascinating Story Of Berlin museum tour. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Recycling on a Monday morning

Just throw the toilet out with the recycling on a chilly Monday morning in Montreal

Toilet graveyard at High Park

Thanks to my friend Sam for the tipoff about these poor #abandonedthrones near High Park! I got up early this morning just to go pay my respects. Apparently every toilet in this apartment building is being replaced. What could be so bad about EVERY DAMN LOO that warrants such a toilet graveyard? 😳

A bathroom worth of dumped toilets

Thanks to a pal on Instagram for tipping me off about this bathroom worth of #abandonedthrones sitting amongst a dumpster, a portaloo & some doors in the Saint-Henri area!
