The Monson Historical Society has recently acquired the toilet from Monson's Laconia combination passenger/baggage car. The curvature of the new acquisition matches the diagram of the toilet on p.81 of Roger Whitney's book, and the porcelain portion below the wooden seat bears the name Astbury & Maddock.  The toilet is currently on display at the Monson Museum.

How did THAT survive this long?  Was it in another outhouse?

Don't know history at this point.  The toilet is in good condition.  Society was approached by local antique dealer, who apparently donated the toilet.  I will attempt to learn more.

Well, if the TV commercials can be believed - that a couple has an architect design a complete home around a Kohler sink faucet - hmmm, wonder if a combine could be built around a toilet...
