I’ve been looking at some of the old picture files that got rescued from my old computer. It seems I can be a bit of a hoarder with those so it is time to clean things up.
I have several photographs, taken YEARS AGO, with an old camera, that I intended to use here. I would post some horrific medical practice from my Victorian medical book and use one of these photographs to add some visual interest. I still think it is a good idea but I just don’t have the time to read the book and the pictures are not improving with age. By the time I get to this project (horrible medical practices) I will be retired and will have a camera 8 times better than the one I have now and 10 times better than the one that took these.
So I will just use them and send them on their way to the oblivion of deletion.
The museum has a “pharmacy” display, and I took these random photos there. Note the box for veterinary use and also make the assumption that at least half of these medicines contain some sort of narcotic or toxic ingredient and that people could by this stuff without a prescription. Say what you want about “Big Pharma”, things are better now!
