Stalking an Australian icon

Posted on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 by midcenturyjo

You may be impressed by the contemporary extension and renovation of this 1908 brick house by . I’m impressed by the renovation of that great Australian icon, the outdoor toilet, the relic of a time before sewerage, the dunny. So many have been demolished or left to decay as inadequate and forgotten “tool sheds”. I think this one is the first 5 star dunny I have seen. I’m stalking Aussie icons in Balmain, Sydney. Link while it lasts.


For me a dunny to the stars would be a dunny where I could SEE the stars – an at-one-with-the-universe experience. Probably with no roof then.
