Day 3 of my expedition led to

Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum
DSC_0089It was a such a little museum which was hard to find in the hospital.
But the lady there explained the history of discovering penicillin.
Very interesting!

The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret
DSC_0094Having been to Hunterian Museum yesterday, I noticed there has been some overlapping information when I visited The Old Operating Theatre.
Amputation before the invention of anesthesia and antiseptic was barbaric. Speedy operation was required to prevent the blood-loss and shock. Apparently, some Victorian doctors could amputate a leg within 1 min. Some in 30 seconds!
