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.

  3. 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.

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

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

  9. 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?

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

  13. 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!

  16. 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...

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

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

    Lovely series of photos.
