September 2015 Theme Day: Curiosities

A few weeks ago I saw this curious sign...


I went closer and found a lovely door with a heart...


I opened the door...


We call this a "Plumpsklo".


Not far away I found these other curiosities...




Each 1st day of the month is "Theme Day" of the City Daily Photo Community.

Those are truly curiously interesting! The Eco Toilet sure looks eco friendly :)

Great finds for this month's theme!
Beautiful eco toilette. Once upon a time they were all over.

Wonderful selection Karl!

Revrunner said...

We'd call it a one-holer. :-)

Ahha, your eco-toilet is know in Australia as a "long-drop" and can still be found in outback towns. I grew up with just such a curiosity.

Interesting set of curiosities, Karl. The eco-toilet looks fairly new...not at all how I remember them from the past. ;))

I haven't see a toilet like this in a while... Many funny and curious things around it!

I wondered what an "eco toilet" would be. Now I know. They've been around for years!

A "plumpsklo' you say Karl, how curious :)

The owl particularly stands out for me, Karl!

Don't see many outhouses anymore. But I like this one and it's located in the woods so would be great for people hiking. So many other curiosities, too. I wonder what they are all about?

If that's an "eco" toilet, I don't want to be green!
Fun finds for today's theme.

We call those an outhouse! That has to be one of the cleanest I've ever seen, Karl!

Na ich nenne das eine besonders schöne blaue Grotte aber Plumpsklo ist auch... nett!!!!

Wonderful pictures for Theme Day Karl! My great grandparents had a "plumpsklo" when I was little, but we just called it the outhouse. I was always afraid there might be a snake lurking in there, so I was really glad when they finally got indoor plumbing!

Kate said...

You hit the jackpot with these curiosities! Love the CLEAN-appearing outhouse.

Just like the toilets in summer houses here in Sweden.

I guess there are still people who live places here in Norway, where they still have "utedo" as we call little rooms with a heart window on the doors. It used to be a place that photos of the Royal family where put up...

That 'restroom' as we would say in the USA or 'loo' in the UK looks interesting. Like the cute little additional curiosities too.

We have a lot of those toilettes in holiday houses in Finland. We call it "puu-cee"

Lovely series of photos.
