    It's a great visit, I really enjoyed it when we went.

    This is a great shot of Lady Liberty:

    But only in a designated TB Ward/Hospital. The basin is a standard design of early 1900's US hospital basin used for head and hair washing. Unfortunately TB is easily spread by spitting - hence spitting in the streets being an offence in UK streets back then - but sufferers produced excessive amounts infective sputum that could not go down sinks/basins used for other purposes. Back in the 50's many UK towns and cities had separate chest and X-ray clinics just to check for TB. Any child with a long term cough and temperature was soon sent for an X-ray; as I was after a long lasting summer illness. I was one of the lucky ones, although the old 'jelly test' indicated I had been in contact with the virus, my immune system had stopped it infecting me. Other school children were not so lucky and it is worrying today that we see a return of a drug resistant TB in some inner city environments.

    Awesome mate. I was over there in 2016 looking at the tourist bit. Remember looking over at this part and thinking I would love to get among it :) In one of the museums there was pics and bits of old equipment that they had took from here years ago on display. I remember thinking how lucky the people who had a look around then where. Good to see more from here. Great report bud.
