|The Water Closet 209 College Avenue|
I kept hoping to find a good street scene photo of this place but never could. The Water Closet came along sometime in the mid-70s and was located to the right of Little Doc's on College Avenue. It was a pretty cool store that sold water beds (all the rage back then .... and yes, I had one).
They also sold beanbag chairs, "head" gear, and black lights. There was an upstairs and a downstairs section and carried some stereo equipment as well.
Looking at this ad I wondered what constituted a true Bong emergency, but I don't doubt that it might have happened from time to time. I assume the Collegiate Times wouldn't be able to post an ad like this today!
A blog reader sent me this photo of his ash tray some time ago. At least someone still has a souvenir of the joint. Anyone else have a memory of The Water Closet?
