Yeah I still see them out in the countryside from time to time as well. Usually not still in use, although back around 2000 or so I remember encountering a historic building out west which had been converted to a daycare, and they didn't have any indoor plumbing apart from maybe a sink. All the kids still had to use an outhouse pretty much like yours! Pretty amazing that they could pass inspections like that, I have my doubts that you could get away with that today. Never seen any anywhere near the cities though, most of the urban outhouses were eliminated during the original sanitation campaigns of the early 20th century.
