Cela doit être intéressant de voir les anciennes méthodes.

But...can be replace the spent battery in my wrist-watch?
Chris: Any bodily bits you require lopping off sir?
Ouch! But I do like their hats. smile
Chris: Wonderful aren't they, especially the surgeon's

I expect such is the demand on the NHS that such equipment and skills will be used again. I like the tin "hat".
Chris: The tin hat looks medieval. Mind you, so does my perception of his surgery methods..
At first glance he looks to have an animal on his lap..... double take....
Chris: Well maybe he has. This is, after all, the olden days..

I don't think you want to see the things they have in the operating room nowadays, Chris. Back then you could see everything and now you are "out" before they roll you in the operating room "not to see" all the hacksaws and other claws to out take your gut grin....
Great picture of the two men.
Chris: It gives me the shudders to see these things Astrid, being of a sensitive nature. But this is how life used to be..

I got pains even if I see these tools to extract a dent - or thinking of my hip ops.
Chris: I understand Philine

“Well I’m afraid we are going to have to chop it off. I can do it now if you can’t give me five minutes”
Chris: Service with a smile then Chad..

Quack dentistry.
Chris: Rubbish!

This qualified surgeon will happily and competently whip-off any parts you no longer use..
Is this what you would have in America if you couldn't afford medical insurance?
Chris: OMG - you're right!
Un souvenir du passé qui nous permet de mieux voir les avancés actuelles !
Chris: Just looking at these old surgeon's tools make me cringe Claudine..

Perhaps not today, eh, Chris?
Chris: Err...later Lisl, much later
Not one I'd care to make!
Chris: Nor me Tom
A tooth or a bone, and probably done right after milking the cow or any other chore - without washing his hands.
Chris: Oh dear..
This is one exhibit table I would scoot right by, Chris. Just thinking of what these instruments were used for gives me the willies.
Chris: You are not alone in that Bev..
i wonder if he gets his hat mixed up with the steel basin, Chris.
Chris: A bizarre idea Ayush!
It's daunting enough these days, it must have been hoffific in times gone by.
Chris: We can only shudder and move on Brian
Wow! Suddenly I love 21st century ;D
Chris: Yes indeed Paula, so do I!

With that apron, the doctor looks more like he needs a hammer and anvil.
Chris: Well it's all those blood & guts splashing about I suppose Louis..
