Continuing with pit stops...
a stop (as during a trip) for fuel, food, or rest or for use of a restroom.

This time we'll step back in time and visit an historical bathroom at Casa Loma in Toronto.

Click here to see the ground floor.

Casa Loma is one of the top ten tourist attractions and hospitality venues in Toronto. With its unique architecture and enchanting gardens, Casa Loma is one of the grandest residences ever constructed in Canada. At 98 rooms, it is also the largest residence in Canada.

At the time the castle was built, there were 30 bathrooms complete with all gold plated fixtures. In fact, one of the most remarkable rooms in Casa Loma is Sir Henry's private, all marble, gold-fixture bathroom. This amazing bathroom has proven to be ahead of its time with a custom-designed shower complete with an 18 inch diameter showerhead intended to fully surround the body with water. He did not even have to turn around in his shower in order to be thoroughly washed.


  1. 98 rooms! Impressive, also the ground flow, so green.

  2. ...what a place, 30 bathrooms, really? I like the exterior better than the interior. Thanks Jackie for raising your potty breaks to an entirely new level.

  3. Bathrooms well ahead of their time. With 98 rooms they must have needed a riding vacuum cleaner. Never have seen interior photos of Casa Loma before. Thanks for the post.

  4. Wow, that's a lotta bathrooms! I knew a man who referred to a pit stop as "a stop to water the mules."

  5. that shower looks like a torture chamber!
