Then and now

At the Appila Springs picnic grounds, I found great examples of how times have changed for dealing with human effluent.

On the left, is the original toilet, known colloquially as a ‘long drop’ and on the right, a modern composting toilet that is also suitable for wheelchair access.  The small water tank provides handwashing facilities inside the building. Having used both types over the years, I know which version I prefer!

    • The old style ones have stories that modern ones will never have. And did you know there were twin seats sometimes too? Side by side……!

    • There was a slight noise when we approached it Holly – often snakes take up residence in these outbuildings, and Fred was rather interested! Fortunately, we didn’t see it:-)
