Adriaansen talks on privies

By Carolyn Adriaansen Following are excerpts from informational books and pamphlets that I have collected in an 'Outhouse' file.

"American privies have to be considered almost current history when compared with European ones. Our images of the old, wooden rural two-seater that always leaned in some direction (why, we do not know, unless from being kicked over every Halloween) was due to the economics of the time. American privies were the only ones with a moon or star above the door. The moon meant it was for ladies and a star would be for the gents."
