Outhouse at Stokes Bay, Kangaroo Island, Australia
(Photo from a slide taken in May, 1970)
The structure on the right was the loo on the property of Harold Lightburn at Stokes Bay on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. (My Australian readers might have heard of Harold Lightburn, of Lightburn washing machines and the Lightburn Zeta automobile fame.)
The loo was adjacent to a small creek that ran down to the sea. A gasoline-powered engine pumped water from the creek up into the holding tank on top of the outhouse structure. Inside the outhouse was a chain-pull toilet that flushed everything back into the creek and out to sea.
I debated on whether to use this photo as it is rather old, (the original photo was shot on slide film back in 1970), but it is rather unique.
