Odd basement bathroom

Recommended Posts

Around here, there are 80+ year old houses that have lone commodes with no privacy walls in basements. The commodes were installed because household help--typically African Americans--were not allowed to use the same plumbing as the owners of the house.

A sad reminder of how things used to be, huh?

The commode in the photo, of course, surrounded by 8" x 16" walls, wasn't installed for the same antiquated purpose.
