Collecting photos of                   Middle Tennessee Outhouses seems somewhat strange, but                   due to the fact that these Tennessee treasures are                    fast disappearing from the   Tennessee landscape makes                   it all the more necessary to photograph them. Those                    Outhouses which have not been destroyed or removed by                   human hands and urban dev     elopment are fast  decaying                   from the elements of time.
