Challenge has finished
Do you remember when indoor plumbing was not common? Neither do I but I have found many outhouses still exist (though not really utilized). I am looking for historic examples of these and not the metal type used at festivals and other public places. Enjoy.

Original 'long drop' toilet. Typical old waterless remote bush toilet - a seat over a very long pit (hence the 'nickname!) They are covered in frequently and a new pit is dug. Civilised living in the bush! The flowers are Banksias which like a sandy soil
