They generally had two onboard lavs in 1930's air transport:

Genuinely surprised that the 10-A still has a valid airworthiness certificate!

It's likely not registered for commercial use, so not at all surprising if that's the case.

Not by much. I did a flight on "her" during AC's 60th Anniversary when it also did a cross country tour. Seats were sold for a short flight over Edmonton from/to YXD with the proceeds going to AC's charity flights program. Unfortunately the original straw/wood seats had to be replaced by sets of traditional Y seats in a 1-1 configuration. Pitch was about the same as I remember having on Concorde. Photos below.

Boarding at YXD during AC's 60th Anniversary in 1997.

Over Edmonton and a clear August afternoon in 1997.

Surprisingly about the same as a Dash8, though noisier! We did have a beautiful day for such a flight and no CAT.
