Lab History - the Wellcome Collection

Hi All,
I just got back from a short trip to London. On my last day I went to the Wellcome Trust, which holds a collection of curiosities related to medicine. As well as a collection of objects and art works in the same field. Here´s some pictures I´d like to share with you

1. A Floating laboratory, ca 1911

2. Mobile field bacteriological laboratory interior, Khartoum 1918

3. Charles Darwin´s walking stick, whalebone and ivory, 19th century

This is their website:
