    The outhouse can be seen through the trees. Toilets were small wooden buildings commonly with two seating spaces. Unheated, the privy was cold in the wintertime. Waste built up under the seat until it was necessary to move the privy, or construct a new one. At night, women and girls made use of a flanged bucket known asa a slop jar and kept it under their beds. There is a slop jar on the corner of the porch. Indoor plumbing did not come to most farms until the 1930's, 1940's, or 1950's.
