Dan from Toilography travelled to Potsdam in upstate New York to see Hank Robar’s famous Potty Gardens!
With a population of around 17,000, this quaint university town in upstate NY is also populated by hundreds of colourful loos. Check out the video to find out about the reason they’re there.
And Happy World Toilet Day! This video was released on 19th November 2018 – the annual United Nations observation that raises awareness of the global sanitation crisis. There are billions of people out there who don’t have access to sanitary facilities. My Potsdam adventure is very light-hearted but please take some time today to think about those less fortunate and donate to a worthy cause if you can.
Just look at these works of art! –
Dan from Toilography went to Embassy Bar in Toronto’s Kensington Market, a bohemian area renowned for its street art. The words of wisdom graffitied onto these washroom walls certainly didn’t disappoint.
Dan from Toilography went to Ravenswood, North Queensland, and saw a classic Aussie thunderbox outside an historic miner’s site. Take a tour of the town’s attractions, pubs & toilets, and you’ll even get to meet Woodie, a true Aussie character!
Dan from Toilography went to Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg and saw these funky shipping container toilets, as well as a statue of a rather famous bear named Winnie. Take a look at the video here:
The park’s washrooms were constructed in 2013 and have even picked up a couple of design awards in the years that followed. I was definitely glad to have had the chance to come here!
Have you ever seen an upside down toilet before? Dan from Toilography visits the Upside Down House in Niagara Falls, Ontario, where he encounters this unthinkable bathroom scenario!
Dan from Toilography visits Modern Toilet Restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan.
I’d been to other toilet-themed restaurants in the past like T-Bowl Concept Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur and Poop Cafe in Toronto, but Modern Toilet is the original – I’ve been wanting to see it for years and finally got the chance!
For even more photos & details on my Modern Toilet experience, check out the Toilography blogpost.
And be sure to follow Toilography on YouTube – more toilet films to come soon!
