Subject: old drug store items.

These pictures were sent from my hometown in Iowa and were from the Ahrens Drug Store there. They were never displayed when I lived there [to my memory] and were circa 1919 according to my source. They were sold at auction on October 12th for $500 each and similar items go for about $2000 each on ebay for eg.. interesting uh? wish Icould go back in time long enough to have a real cherry phospate just once more...

Cherry Julep
Orange Julep
