I tried to zoom in and find out what is in the ” pick me up” 🙂
I like the photo, nice collection of meds gone by.
I was wondering what the “pick me up” was as well and should have looked more closely at the time. 🙂
They still make and sell that corn huskers lotion. I bet a lot of the rest would be considered illegal to sell now.
My mother used to put Corn Huskers on my sunburns when I as a little boy.
…and she kept it in the refrigerator. Whoo! Cold, but nice.
Hard to believe that people actually saved this stuff. Interesting though!
Pretty cool. We went into a pharmacy museum of sorts in St Augustine Florida. It is fun to see these things.
What terrific photos, Brett! I have always been fascinated by vintage medicine bottles for reasons unbeknownst to me. Whether in a museum or some kind of display, I thoroughly enjoy reading every single label! Thanks for sharing these gems. Cher xo
Fun to compare to some of our current remedies!
I remember having to take Wonder Oil as a kid when I had a cold. That was before the doctors started suggesting newer off the shelf cough/cold go to sleep medicine. 😀
My Great Uncle would have his little tin box of kidney pills. Not sure what they were for. 🙂
Great post. Bring back memories. BTW Here in Canada they stopped making Buckley’s White Rub. The younger generation are wimps – now to look online for some of that “original pick me up”. 😀
Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories!
I love the packaging of these !!!!!! 🙂
