This picture was sent in by JH. He writes: "The original part of the Gateway Lodge at Cook Forest in Cookburg PA (NW central PA, 16mi N of I-80) is a marvellous 1936 log structure that includes some American Chestnut panelling. An expansive addition blends in nicely, leaving the original lodge essentially untouched. The addition is only some 10yrs old, but the facility adjacent to the Great Room, which serves the dining room as well, bucks the trend of porcelain overkill with just a single urinal. Judging from its style, which seems to pre-date the 90's, it seems likely that this fixture may have seen service elsewhere, perhaps in a previous men's room there."
