Picton, fjord

Second look (116)

These days nobody in a western country should have to suffer from poverty anymore. A phone, television, roof above your head, enough food to survive, real poverty has been left behind. Not very long ago though, many had a toilet still in the garden. Then today, walking a block I noticed something that seemed from half a century ago. The toilet back in the backyard. Recession must have struck hard. But even then, a bit of privacy is not too much to ask for, is it?
