Privy digger Bob Perrin, Coaldale, left, describes how treasures found at old outhouse sites tell us about lifestyles of long ago, including the types of medicines used. Perrin showed examples of tonics, toys, dolls, bottles and even glass Christmas decorations of yesteryear, all of which were found buried at local outhouse sites. Perrin addressed a group of 25 on Wednesday evening at the Lansford Historical Society.
