The Vintage Pharmacy

Monday, August 15, 2011

I am an avid collector of vintage and antique labels and my collection mostly includes
sewing and perfume ephemera.
Recently I have become fascinated by antique and vintage pharmacy labels and the
bottles and packages they are stored in.
This was inspired by a recent ABC television program featuring a recreation of a Victorian pharmacy, making and dispensing cures for the local community.
The elaborate formulas and packaging were truly amazing.
