This little building, so finely made, is the privy at
Van Cortland Manor, the Hudson Valley restoration I told
you about last Friday.
No tacky outhouse with a crescent moon carved in the door
 for ventilation, this facility is a luxury accommodation.
It's a four-seater, created to accommodate both the
 young and the old in elegant style.
I saw no indication of what would have been used to wipe those
colonial bottoms. Any guesses?
