Then this little gem wouldn’t have lain hidden in a church attic, lost, alone and probably a bit stinky, for almost 100 years.Well worth a visit, particularly for the talks, beware… there will be gorey details! Hand washing optional.
Porcelain dolls were used in the 1920’s to help train nurses in the treatment of tuberculosis at the Royal Seabathing Hospital, Margate.
Nowadays they are used to give you nightmares in the Margate museum.
