February 7, 1907

This is the gloriously appointed Chemist Shop of Mr Jones on the Quay in Waterford City. Having explored Mr Jones' shelves, I think that the next time I go into a modern chemist/pharmacy for "Tablets of Compressed Drugs", the experience will be a little boring by comparison.

 

See the comments below for discussion on, and adverts for the weird and wonderful products on sale in this veritable Aladdin's Cave of early medicaments, some of which are still on our shelves today!

 

Date: Thursday, 7 February 1907
