Early Tomorrowland Exhibits: The Crane Bathroom of Tomorrow



It’s a day of being stingy, as I present only 1 new image to represent the Crane Plumbing Bathroom of Tomorrow, which opened on April 5, 1956 and was also called Fun With Water. It featured a display of citrus yellow "Criterion" fixtures, designed by Henry Dreyfuss. The last part of this exhibit was called "Industrial Flow Control,” which was a display of "Valves in Industry," where guests could use the valves to control the flow of water in a colorful display of transparent “pipes.”

This previously posted image of the Spaceman shows the entrance to this "attraction." The Crane Bathroom of Tomorrow became part of the past when it closed on August 31, 1965.

I wonder how many Guests entered saying, "'Bathroom of Tomorrow'? But I need to use it TODAY!!"

It may be the "bathroom of tomorrow", but I know it still doesn't have a bidet.

Just because you didn't post 20 images doesn't make today's post "stingy"!
