|Robert Forsyth's Plumbing Store, 1868-1869
The window display of this plumber's store shows the early plumbing fixtures. Note that these early sinks were simple water basins with holes in their centers to accommodate a drainage pipe. The faucets shown in the bottom window contrast strikingly with the pump just below the window on the outside right of the building.
