PROP FUN WITH THE SCIENCE MUSEUM
Man, oh, man. Here is a link that is priceless to all of us with the desire and need to make props. It's a link to a science museum in the UK which contains thousands and thousands of reference photos of various kinds of tools and supplies that were used in early medicine and surgery. All photos are seperated into categories with theme and country in mind. So if you want to know what a amputation kit looked like in a certain country in a certain period of time then this is the place for you.
You can literally spend hours gazing at the photos, and what I truly dig about most of the pics is their obvious signs of usage-their wear and tear. The main pet peeve I have when it comes to props on low budget films is how they are not weathered and seemingly came straight out of a box.
