Retro-Wednesday...





Hi Everybody....
I was casually surfing some vintage web sites yesterday, when I came across some familiar items. After rummaging around the garage for a bit I came across a bag with some old medicinal bottles inside. The Dr. Edwards Olive Pills are from the 40's. The Tums and Dental Floss dispensers are from the 50's.
And NO, I do NOT still use them..
(Although I could..hehehehe)
Peace...!!!

I think the oldest patented medicine I've had that actually works, is Doan's pills...

Confession: I can't come to your blog without having to say, "...and now it's time for...Misterrrr Knowitallllll!!!!"

Old tins and things are interesting. I have a little metal advert sign as a key chain. I bought it at a blitz museum in London, where you walk around and the street is on fire, til you get to the gift shop. Anyway, my keychain thingie advertises Baldwin's Nervous Pills. I can use some!

These bring back memories of my mom's medicine cabinet...not the same items, but similar style of packaging. Man, that's a long time ago, I must be older than I feel. :))

Mama Zen said...

I was surprised about the Tums, too!

S said...

Amazing what you have stashed in that house!

the walking man said...

May your memory never fail Galen...all of this history would be lost in bags and boxes buried around the property.
