Asylum History Month

The image of the haunted asylum is at the cultural forefront near Halloween, so October is a great time to learn about asylum history. These posts provide photographs or historical information about asylums around the world. This year’s posts are about historic institutions in Australia, China, England, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, North Wales, Scotland, South Africa and Spain. These feature only outdoor pictures, and special attention is given to asylum gardens. Sundays will be dedicated to different architectural styles, theories, and designs.
