Vintage Street Bathrooms & Porta Pottys (1865)

Better than peeing on the sidewalk! The first images are creative but awkward street urinals. The second to last image is of a vintage Porta Potty, which people could brush their teeth in too! Lastly, there is a photo of a ‘water closet’. While doing this post I learned that a ‘water closet’ is a public bathroom.

These photos were taken by Charles Marville, whom liked photographing bathrooms and streetlights.
