Flushed with Pride

This exhibition highlights the history and science of public health in Leicester, using historic exhibits. The history of everyday terminology for our bodily waste is graffitied on a toilet door. There is a talking toilet (in a modern bathroom setting); Victorian toilets and Roman water pipes; and a working water pump powered by a paraffin engine. There is also a unique inter-active toilet with a see-through bowel and cistern, where the journey of an object can be followed from flush to drain.
