Serious about plumbing


An old Thomas Crapper WC

You know you are in a serious business when university professors deliver lectures about the history of the profession.

Unfortunately this one is in the USA so I am not likely to attend.

But if you want to go along to hear professor of architecture Jacek Bigosinski talk about the history of plumbing from ancient times to the Victorian era, it sounds like a great night out (seriously, it does – doesn’t it?).

He will also (according to the publicity for his talk) “explore whether the driving force behind the rapid spread of indoor plumbing in the 19th century was generated by convenience, social status or necessity” – as well as discussing how modern plumbing changed American lifestyles.
