Dr. Hugh Watt

Dr. Wyatt, great-grandson of James Watt (he patented the steam engine) moved to Barkerville with his wife in 1882 where they set up house.

Dr. Watt was a surgeon at the Royal Cariboo Hospital and also ran a private practice in an office attached to his house.

Imagine being injured and needing this man to perform surgery on you?

Hell. No.

No offense, Dr. Watt, but I’ll just stay outside letting my gangrene foot kill me.

Thanks, though.

Bonne journée!
