It’s the 100th anniversary of the passing of Mr. Thomas Crapper. While not the inventor of the toilet (by John Harrington in 1596), Mr. Crapper is known as the grandfather of toilets. He did much to revolutionise the indoor convenience. Surprisingly, the term “crap” did not derive from his name but from the Dutch word “krappe,” which came into use centuries before the birth of this savior of our nostrils.
The company has been reborn and is now based in Stratford-upon-Avon.
All in a days work at the Crapper factory.
