If there are any London makers going to this please take some photos!
WHERE can you find a torture chair, Napoleon’s toothbrush and Florence Nightingale’s slippers?
Answer: In a free exhibition opening in London today.
They are among more than a MILLION bizarre objects stockpiled by eccentric tycoon Sir Henry Wellcome, an obsessive collector.
And bewarned, some exhibits, a sample of which are pictured here, could have come straight from a chamber of horrors.
Sir Henry, born in America in 1853, made his wedge when he co-founded pharmaceutical company Burroughs Wellcome & Co in London. When he died in 1936 it emerged he had bequeathed his fortune to set up a charity, the Wellcome Trust, to advance medical research.
