Who Invented Porta Potties and Other Interesting Portable Toilet Facts

Porta potties have a long, interesting history starting from very specific use to now becoming part of every-day life at job sites, outdoor gatherings, and sporting events. One of the first recorded uses of a portable toilet was in England hundreds of years ago. The solution for a portable facility even extended to the Royal Family. Portable toilets then grew in prominence during World War II in the 1940s. They were used on airplanes to support airmen on long flights and in shipyards to save time for sailors.
