A Typical Outhouse.... This was a part of life growing up! Ouch... that really dates me!
Located near the small coastal town of Maryport in northwestern England, remains of the ancient Roman fort of Alauna were first uncovered by amateur archaeologist Joseph Robinson in the late 19th century. Among the finds were an assemblage of no less that 22 stone altars, some bearing inscriptions, that tell a story of successive Roman commanders who commanded this, one of Imperial Rome's northernmost outposts during the height of the Roman Empire's expanse.
A bit of history..."Had to pin this just for the memories...as a little kid on my Grandpa's farm... yes, kids, there was a time we had to go potty outside ... and I feel so old knowing that I can remember actually going out there and being afraid I would fall through one of the holes.."
This lonely john in Brennelv, Norway gets extra points for the lovingly carved-out heart in the door. Isn’t it an outhouse straight out of a textbook? For those, er, longer sessions, there should be a do-it-yourself guide provided for those inspired to copy this fine example of craftsmanship.
