lung machine

Went for an inordinately pleasant pub lunch in a village just south of Nottingham that I can't remember the name of. I'll find out and let you know the name of the pub, it's really really good. And I mostly hate pubs. The food is brilliant. Anyway, found a book on the shelves that took my fancy and took a load of photos of the illustrations because you just don't see this sort of thing anymore and I think it's a pity. My friends, as ever, thought I was being a knob, and not without some justification. The book was called something like "Your body, the Machine". And explained everything a young enquiring mind of the fifties could have wanted to know about how their body worked. I think this is the lungs getting oxygen to the blood and it all getting pumped round by your heart. Worth looking at the large size for the detail, it's great. This book must have spooked the living daylights out of a whole generation of kids
