This toilet chain was used for outside toilets and schools.
Some outside toilets were joint to the main house, and others were independent outside cubicles. Usually a brick structure with slate roof, and a wooden door. The modern outside toilets would have a flush feature and an enclosed bottom area. The toilet seat would usually be made from wood, in the form of planks over the enclosed bottom area, with a hole cut for sitting upon.
Toilet paper was an extra expense so many people would use cut to size newspaper squares, hung on a piece of string for a substitute.
Other names for the toilet include lavatory, bathroom, privy, urinal, outhouse, loo, the powder room, the Ladies, the Gents, WC, and restroom.
