James Cook Museum
Townsville, AU - Mime - Sunday, February 15th, 2009
On a road trip to Cooktown (Australia) to pick up a car with some friends, we stopped along the way at the James Cook Museum which they helped run at the time. While they were attending to paperwork and such, they let me explore the museum and loaned me their digital camera to take some shots about the place, one of which made it into a local newspaper.
Here is the website with a brief description of the history:
This is the view as you walk in the front door.
If you walk down beside the stairs, there is a doorway, this is the view looking back towards the stairwell.
As stated in the website for the museum, it used to be a convent. The people who introduced me to the place told me that the girls and the nuns slept in the attic which was immensely creepy and the only way to get down from there at night if you were say, a young girl who needed to use the facilities was this staircase, as the nuns were the only ones allowed to use the staircase in the second shot:
Hey hey, pretty creepy you reckon? Well, one of the artifacts on display at the museum was this:
Thank goodness for modern medicine, novocaine and such. This dentist chair is from the 1800s sometime (I didn't take notes while I was wandering around.) The mechanism beside it on the left is a foot powered drill!
