      Although plumbing has occupied a central position in American life since the mid-nineteenth century, little scholarly attention has been paid to its history. Both in the United States and Europe, architects and designers are prolific producers, marketing furniture, lamps and tabletop items to stores around the world. Ogle draws on a wide assortment of contemporary sources-sanitation reports, builders' manuals, fixture catalogues, patent applications, and popular scientific tracts-to show how the demand for plumbing was prompted more by an emerging middle-class culture of convenience, reform, and domestic life than by fears about poor hygiene and inadequate sanitation. Indeed, the lust for a set of graceful Regency chairs, a beautifully inlaid cabinet or a breakfront crafted by an 18th-century furniture maker became as much a status symbol as a silver Porsche or a gold-faced Rolex watch. She also examines advancements in water-supply and waste-management technology, the architectural considerations these amenities entailed, and the scientific approach to sanitation that began to emerge by century's end.
