2010 Featured Toilet Paper

We had the chance to photograph a cross-section of some favorite interesting toilet paper from our collection for a magazine. It was a great excuse to update these pages a bit.

At right, curators and TagYerit band members Flo & Rich Newman display some of the toilet paper samples collected from musicians who graciously added their signatures to the collection. Some samples are clipped to Flo's trademark hand-carved rabbit guitar.

Keep in mind, that the "in the field collectors" of each of these signed samples has an interesting story to tell about how they managed to obtain their prize. From polite requests to outright bribery, their resourcefulness is evident in these pages.

Historical

These are a few of the older samples in our collection. They were saved from the flusher by concerned people long before this collection was conceived. The Softex is from April 1942. The Gayetty packet is among the oldest. Gayetty is considered the inventor of commercial toilet paper, which he first sold in 1857. Gayetty paper was reportedly sold into the 1920s. Eagle Tissue from Vermont first sold toilet tissue in 1869. We don't know when Novelty toilet paper first popped up, but this roll is representative of the genre.Includes several gems such as "The apple may have caused The Fall of man, but the Banana is the cause of many a "Slip" and "Knock knock ... Who's there? jitter ... Jitter who ... Jitter get off the pot".

This oval roll of toilet paper was removed from the bathroom stall in an old 4th floor brothel in Seattle WA by Second Use. Second Use is in the business of reclaiming building materials & the 1889 building which had once housed Warshall's Sporting Goods store was in the process of being replaced with the luxury Hotel 1000.
