a Wall of Drawers

4 December, 2009

Encountered in Toulouse, at L’Hôtel-Dieu Saint-Jacques (a hospital, not a hotel as one might assume from the name).  What a wonderful way to store your knickknacks, bric-a brak, baubles, do-dads and curios.


Or, alternatively, to store your ‘Lierre Terrestr.’–ground ivy.  To each his own.


(If you may remember, this is the same hospital where I found the marvelous noses.  Turns out those directors not only had nez galbées, but a commendable sense of interior design)

    Were you at this hospital? what space was this? What was kept in all of those drawers? Why do my capital letters frequently not show up as lower case?

    Haha, I was wondering about your typing.

    This hospital in Toulouse is now a museum. I’m not sure what this space was–maybe a research room? The drawers were filled with herbal medicines and such. Unfortunately, my five phrases in French don’t cover much medical language.
