Walter Potter's Museum of Curious Taxidermy on Film, Circa 1965!


Some of you might remember seeing a post or two here on Morbid Anatomy devoted to the inspired work of Victorian anthropomorphic taxidermist Walter Potter. I have long been a huge fan of his work, but until now, I had no idea that there existed a circa 1965 film documenting a visit to his museum which was, sadly, broken up at auction a few years ago.

All I have to say is WOW.

Thanks so much to Lee Unkrich for sending this to me!

It's so sad to learn that his collection was broken up. It would have been a joy to go and see in person.
