We found these Victorian bathroom illustrations and photos on the Vintage Plumbing website. They say the bathroom was very rarely photographed at the turn of the century, so these bathroom illustrations from old trade catalogs are special. We love the drawing above of a New York brownstone bathroom by J.L. Mott...

It's amazing how all of these bathrooms have good natural lighting, high ceilings, and crown mouldings. Today's idea of a great bathroom still takes a few ques from these Victorian designs: white running bond subway tile, generous lavatories, and designated storage for all of our bathroom accoutrements.
