The Workhouse for the Weekend 1

The workhouse had extensive gardens for the growing of Vegetables and even managed to sell the surplus. Working in the garden was done by able bodied men and the toilets provided ample fertilizer....they were close by and emptied by the inmates

Oh yes, Ratty's home, too! The reading is interesting. The garden work might not have been the worst one ... I know these old sacks from my childhood days- used for potatoes or coals in the cellars.
Bill Phillips: I'm not sure the fertilizer collecting had a lot going for it Philine

It sounds horrible: nice mock rat though
Bill Phillips: Human fertilizer is no different from any other!

The best of the series so far. A beautiful light to bring something out of the shadows and a fine composition, too. Pleased you have remembered how to do colour.
Bill Phillips: I try to be versatile Alan grin

On my way to St Ives, I mete a man with 7 wives, and each wife had 7 sacks and in each sack was 7 cats and each cat had caught 7 rats. Rats, cats, sacks, wives how many were going to St Ives?
Bill Phillips: one.
Obviously the poor house did not employ cats. Very good photo.
Bill Phillips: Possibly not Marysmile
So that's where basil got too Bill nearly had me fooled there.
Bill Phillips: I think it is one of Chris' rats
The curators have put some humour into what must have been an awful situation.
Bill Phillips: I think you are right on both counts Brian
Credit were credit is due Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Mr Shaw
Love the mouse smile
You couldn't have staged this better yourself!

"...able bodied men..."

Now...that's an interesting phrase, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Never been used to describe me
