A Healthy Profit Exhibition

About

In this new exhibition, visitors can journey through different parts of the body, including the brain, eyes, ears, lungs, and skeleton to uncover how long, hard days in the mill affected the workers at Quarry Bank. Historic medical equipment including glass eyes and medical chests complete with powders and potions, as well as leech jars, inhalers and ear trumpets from the Thackray Medical Museum will also be on display. Visitors can also see original, never-before-seen documents from the mill archives accounting for accidents, injuries and even causes of death at Quarry Bank.
