  This public outhouse is found in the country of Turkey. In many countries, outhouses are called Water Closets (WC). While this visitor to The Outhouses of America web site was traveling in Turkey a few years ago, he visited some ancient ruins called Ephesus 1000-1500 bc and came across a public 12-holer outhouse. This image came out of his guide book. The description of this public Water Closet follows:
"These were closets in the center of which stood a pool ornamented with large columns, and with mosaic paved all around. Stone toilet seats line the WC and a canal runs in front of the seats."

What else can you see in the images shown? Many times a photo is worth a thousand words and I've only elaborated with a few so here is your chance to add some "color commentary" to my collection. If your addition is worthy, you will find the quote added on the Comments to the Curator page. You can use Email to respond. If you choose to go to the Comments to the Curator page, be prepared to relax with a large beverage of your choice. The reading is spectacular!
