Outhouses at Sunset

Outhouses, Indian Springs Camp Meeting Grounds

Hey, they look quite nice in that late afternoon light. I took this at the Indian Springs Camp meeting grounds. The wooden cabins are in a circle and the outhouses match up to the cabins in a bigger circle outside. Each wooden tent cabin has it's own numbered outhouse.

I've used enough outhouses in my life to last me forever. When I get back from a trip overseas now, I want to get on the floor and hug the first porcelain flush toilet that I find. We are sooooo fortunate.

    1. That is why it always amazes me that people trash public bathrooms. Seriously? You are given a beautiful bathroom and they leave toilet paper all over the floor, pee on the seat....sheeesh.

  2. Whenever we would visit my great-grandmother I made sure I did not have to use hers.

    1. My grandmother in Canada had one in her orchard for use when you were outside. Of course I grew up with one in India.

  3. Beautiful light and color. Yes, I remember when my grandmother still used one of these, in Sewanee, Tennessee!

    1. Young people today would have never used them unless they traveled.

  4. Pretty classy lookin' outhouses, and I know what you mean about the conveniences we have. I had a relatively interesting experience in outhouse in Dec/Jan in Siberia. Never to be repeated.
