Bet in the winter time those outhouses were a thing to be avoided.
Aw I dunno, they'd get quite 'ripe' during summer here in Oz.... back in the day. I think all Aussie councils have mainline sewerage these days, but not so in the early 70's. My sister moved into a new estate that wasn't connected for the first couple of months, so she had the dreaded thunderbox out the back 'til the sewerage was hooked up.
Fortunately I never had the dreaded thunderbox at any of my abodes, the bloody awful things they were.
Well at least it didn't smell as bad in the winter as it did in the summer...so I'm told.
So you're told? You wouldn't be that far from RND's place, would ya?
