Wellcome family

Family, great to see you all here using the site, I had never thought that you would use it so much and it makes so happy to see that you do!

Anyway though it was time to contribute rather than just consume so thought I would share some of the photo's we took at the amazing museum/gallery we visited a few days ago. It's the Wellcome gallery and is a collection that "explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future," in other words a freak show with many curiosities.

Some highlights were (clockwise from left) an abomination, a slice of human, anti-masturbation devices, legged genitalia, a 'mummy bundle' and a collection of old timey medical implements.

There were many more objects of a similar ilk with varying degrees of repulsiveness and intrigue, needless to say it was well worth the visit.
