The bathroom and the dunny

Cee’s Black % White Photo Challenge: Bathrooms/Outhouses

On a recent mini holiday, we went to Inverell. Inverell has a Pioneer Village which has building and artifacts from the bygone era.

I though as I was back in time I should take some photos in black and white. Here are a couple of photos from inside the houses as they would have been in the 1800’s.

This is the bathroom of one house

Out the back was of course the outhouse or dunny as they are called in Australia 190705_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_bathroom_outhouse_pioneer_villiage_inverell1

      1. I’ m just going by what it was like over here. As a small child we had a tin bath at the back of the kitchen. We were fortunate in that the gardener’s cottage was quite large. At that time my dad was a gardener in the grounds of an Abbey. When he changed jobs we moved to a new council house and had our first proper bathroom. The houses my cousins lived in had no such luxury and no tin bath either!

      2. Whoo hoo When we first moved here I dug a big hole and made a toilet room over the hole with a proper seat on a can. Had to put lime and sawdust into the hole. When the hole was full I just moved it along to the next hole and after the third hole was full, dug out the first and started again
