Pollock’s Toy Museum in London

I didn’t expect to be spooked on my visit to Pollock’s Toy Museum.  The toys were interesting but it was scary.  I guess it’s the whole idea that these toys belong to children who are already dead.  I didn’t even notice my reflection in the photo till someone else pointed it out.
