Holiday Photos 11 ... The V & A And The Science Museums

However many times I go to London I inevitably find my way to the V&A, even if only for an hour ... just somewhere that I love.  I also try to go to another museum as well, and this time it was my favourite from childhood, the Science Museum.

As I was only at both for a shortish time there are only a few images, however I haven't posted them all, so if you want to see a few more, then click on any photo and it will take you to the Photobucket links.

I thought it would be nice to bring home a souveneir ... so this seemed a good choice!!

These structures are truly stunning - I think you could spend a whole visit in this one gallery alone.

When I was a kid I loved Origami ... this dress is inspired by that art

As I said in an earlier post, Dad was in London during the war, and sadly lost a few friends to the V2

In the medical area there are loads of tableaux of treatments of the time ... this Victorian gentleman was resting with gout
