Where to go while in rural America? To the outhouse, of course! They come in one-holer and more, metal, wood, stone, behind the house, next to the bar, all over. Some are ready to tumble and collapse, other are leaning so much you wonder why it still stands. In the 1930s, the WPA designed a "modern" sanitary structure nick named the "Eleanor" in honor of the first lady. They are still around even though the WPA built the last of more than 187,000 in 1943.
