This is claimed to be the oldest flushing toilet in Australia. It’s located in the Imperial Hotel in the Blue Mountains town of Mt Victoria, and most likely manufactured sometime between 1900-1910 by Royal Doulton.
* Also be sure to check out the post on Hopkins Hall to hear about another historic old toilet!
Sorry but my flush toilet in Hopkins Hall in Hobart is still working and dates back to 1835. I can send you a photograph.
That’s fascinating! The claim of the oldest toilet is made by the hotel, but I’m intrigued about yours – I’ll email you…
Sent you photographs – and additional information on – Ironmonger C Davis who’s name is on the toilet cast iron tank with pull-chain. Hope you enjoy the photographs, kind regards, Neville
I did mean to also say that C Davis was a convict.
