This is sort of a continuation on my post about Mary Lamb and mental health care in Regency England. I snooped around online and found some great websites, for anyone who might like to know more. (this just gives a little more history on Bedlam, a link to their modern museum, a few pics) (some cool maps) (The Imperial War Museum website–their building incorporates what is left of the original Bedlam, which I thought was fascinating, though I’ve never visited this museum) (I searched all over the web for a good pic of those statues, and only found one here, of all places, at the Bedlam Asset Management website. It’s a cartoony pic, but you can see sort of what they looked like. Not sure I would let this company manage my assets, though…) (more Bedlam history)

Some Mary Lamb stuff: (Tales from Shakespeare) (a pic of Mary as an old woman)

And, just because I feel like it,

Have a great weekend!
