Old Bath House

This is an old bath house that sits on land gas company purchased on other side of my son's property.  Who ever lived there years ago set up a trailer or small mobile home and had this building right outside from it.  There was a shower and a toilet in the bath house from what we could tell with some of the plumbing fixtures still intact.

Timing of the photograph I took was early spring as leaves were starting to grow on the trees.  Very twiggy all around which I only just hinted at.

I liked the door with it's neat looking window panes and the hanging pieces of peeled wood.

I like the way you showed your progression and suggested the background on this one, Susan.Great colors on the old weathered wood too.

P.S. - Is a bathhouse the same as an outhouse?

Sandy, I wasn't sure what I was doing with the background. It was guess work.....lol. Thank you :-)

No the bath house is totally different. Was used for toilet and bathing (or showering). The outhouse is a different structure with just old fashioned toilet facility.

OK, so it's a toilet and shower?

There's plumbing lines coming into the side as if a shower area might have been there at one time or maybe a sink. Plus then the toilet area. I'll have to try and get back over there and check out the inside again. I had never seen an "outhouse" with plumbing and there was also electric lines leading to the building. Just a little building but larger than a standard outhouse.
