In 2019 I did a road trip through Newfoundland, starting at St. John’s and working my way up to Fogo Island. I stopped for a night at the small town of Trinity, where I explored Trinity Loop, a nearby abandoned amusement park. Plenty of dilapidated dunnies to see here, among many other interesting artifacts and acts of vandalism.
It took me a while to edit this! I have some more footage from Newfoundland to put together hopefully one day soon including some pretty incredible outhouses.
Below are a few photos from around the park:
Toilet hunting has come to a stall (pun intended) over the past year so I cherish the moments I stumble upon outdoor beauties like this. This was found at the Oculus Pavilion, while on a bike ride along Toronto’s Humber Trail.
A quick rendezvous at Montreal’s TRH-Bar after tonight’s work Christmas party to see these beautiful blacklit urinals. It’s been 4 years since I was here last, great to see it’s still standing strong. I was definitely the only person in the bar wearing a suit & bow tie.
See the first visit I made to TRH Bar here back in 2015
A rant on the restroom wall found at Done Right Inn:
I just wanna live in a world where everyone loves each other and guys put the toilet seat down after they piss
– Mrs H.L. Turner
(- I could leave the seat down and piss?)
I discovered Lipstick & Dynamite, another Toronto dive bar with terrifically-tagged toilet walls. Below the pics are a selection of the words of wisdom including a riveting story about a missing tooth.
I lost a tooth in this bar and I had to sort through my shit for two days to find it. My dentist put it back in my mouth. My mother still calls me Shit Tooth when she’s cross with me.
Fuck this trash bar!
— How about you calm the fuck down?
— This bar is my home
— Fuck you!
Poo’d so hard I twisted + shouted
I got a penchant for smokes and kicking dudes in the mouth. Sadly for you my last cigarette’s gone out
I wish I wasn’t left-handed except in this wrist scenario
At one point cave people thought they were the apex of society with their cave etchings. Stop being so fixated on your crude analysis of the fall of Babylon 2.0. (A millennials cliffs notes). Apple crumble America’s greatest bakeoff.
I am a poo factory and I hate myself
I paid a visit to the Cégep de Saint-Laurent, a technical college in Montreal which has some of the best graffitied toilets in all of Canada. There’s 30-40 years worth of graffiti built up on these washroom walls.
It wasn’t my first time here – I’d previously been in 2015 (check out the blog post I made about it back then), but I simply had to go back to get some more pics & video of this incredible restroom.
I asked the people of Reddit for the best graffitied toilets in Calgary and the unanimous vote was for this one at Broken City. What a superb loo. Not only that, but there was a Dolly Parton Drag Queen show happening while I visited. Love it
During my quest to source a list of interesting restrooms across Shanghai, I came across an establishment simply named C’s Bar. It’s a university pub southwest of the city centre and as a fan of dirty, gritty, graffiti-covered dive bars, I must say this was one of the best I’ve ever been to. Get a load of these filthy restrooms:
Here’s a gallery of pics from around the rest of the bar to give you an idea of how it looked. I visited on a quiet night with only 5-6 people in attendance which gave me the perfect opportunity to explore its dark, tainted hallways.
I would 100% drink here again.
This grimy restroom at Vanessa’s Dumpling House has been top of my list of loos to see in New York City for a few years now and I’m very happy to have finally made it here. Amazing toilet and pretty good dumplings too 🚽🥟
Merry Christmas everyone, thanks for a super 2018 and looking forward to sharing many more interesting loos with you all in the new year!
