This week's prompt made me think of the house in which I was born.
It didn't look a bit like this but it did have a fence and some outhouses too, not that you would have known when looking at it from the front.
|100 High Street, Ketton|
When I lived there there was a wooden fence across the front, not that stone wall. It had no running water just a cold tap on an outside wall and when you wanted to 'go' you had to leave by the back door and visit what I euphemistically called "The Black Hole of Calcutta" -- a building with a wooden seat and an open bucket underneath.
So I hope you will forgive me for speculating on the use of:
in our prompt. Why else would you have a hole in the wall?
I doubt that the inhabitants of Bradford still have to pay a visit to the outhouses in this back alley.

But the view from Tyson's veranda in Queensland in 1924 made me wonder about the uses of the sheds between the fences.

I doubt that my Calcutta euphemism will enter the Oxford English Dictionary but another term certainly has - it's even been used to describe a scene on Mount Kenya.

Looks a bit draughty to me.
However I have saved the best (of)fences till last.

Excuse me while I just check to see whether that wooden hut is a 'khazi.'
Now flush' with success, I suggest that you find whether anyone caught the plague at Sepia-Saturday-218,
