THACKRAY MEDICAL MUSEUM LEEDS

Mike and I visited this medical museum, housed in the old workhouse building next to St. James’s hospital in Leeds.  It’s over 20 years since we last visited and its had a bit of a revamp.  Lovely cup of tea and scone in the cafe before we even started.  The ticket will enable us to visit as many times as we want in the next year.  There’s a lot to see and take in.  The workhouse became a military hospital during the first world war.  What I found particularly interesting was the history of the health of the inhabitants of Leeds and how it has advanced.  Anybody who wants to go back to the “good old Victorian Britain” needs their head examining!

Below are a selection of images of some of the information boards.
