Weird Science.

Every so often I post a picture of some of the oddities at The Red Lion, Isleworth and I don't just mean the customers. Remember the Pterodactyls? There are two.

This is a 19th centyury 'Phrenology head', heads mapped out to show human characteristics as dictated by the bumps you find on peoples heads.

It was all nonsense, of course, and very bigoted. Usually, people have them to show that science can be wrong and dangerous too.

Anyway, The Red Lion has put an Elvis wig (or is it Alvin Stardust, I wonder) so you can't see the markings.

Maybe that's just as well.
