The Loo: A Book Review!

Lavatories, loos, bogs, outhouses, thunderboxes, dunnies… whatever your word for toilets, there’s no doubt are “a window into the secret soul of a destination.”

So says one of Lonely Planet’s latest guidebooks, A Spotter’s Guide to Toilets. This pictorial guide to the world’s most stunning toilets features more than 100 restrooms from the Antarctica to Zambia.

“In these pages,” says Lonely Planet, “you’ll find porcelain pews with fantastic views, audacious attention-seeking urban outhouses, and eco-thrones made from sticks and stones in all sorts of wild settings…. Wherever you’re reading this, we hope you’re sitting comfortably!”

For a full selection of loos, toilets, bathrooms, and water closets, visit Knowles Plumbing’s Showroom online or at 279 Manitoba St., in Bracebridge, Muskoka.
