more information on the Thackray PAGE 2
I visited the Thackray in Jan 2014 by appointment with Librarian Alan Humphries who is a mine of information.

I was allowed to photograph the trumpet pages of 16 catalogues giving me 47 new pages of trumpet illustrations.

In addition we added 2 elements to the Medresco page based on items in the Thackray collection.

ALL the large images on this page courtesy of Thackray Medical Museum, Leeds.

They are shown here to illustrate some unusual aspects of their collection.
