Did Thomas Crapper Really Invent the Toilet by Catherine O'reilly
Thomas Crapper & Co. was established in 1861, and Crapper was a great businessman. He relentlessly promoted sanitary fittings to a skeptical world; up until then, bathroom suppliers and manufacturers were discreetly situated on the side streets. Mr. Crapper introduced the first bathroom showroom - imagine when he opened in London's King's Road, opposite Royal Avenue, with water closet bowls in the windows. Ladies fainted in the street. This paperback book measures 5 1/2" x 8" and has 210 pages.
