OUT AND ABOUT - Thackray Medical Museum
Had a lovely day trip to the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds last week, what an incredible museum with a huge presence and collection... Amazing! The building is fascinating as it used to be an old workhouse, the scale of the building is really imposing and it was odd wondering around thinking about the past uses. The collection houses an amazing room full of ceramic apothecary jars known as the Wilson collection... I spent ages there looking at the smallest details on some of the jars, these were all produced between the 1500 - 1800s.
