Lost your marbles?  Pick up a few replacements here:

Jars of chemicals and powders on the shelf.  I took this particular one because of the white jar in the middle labeled: Pot.Sod.Tart - I found the name amusing. :)

Great pictures - looks like you stepped back in time. If K saw those marbles, she would tell me - Look Gramma there are your marbles you lost!

These are great photos, showing an old drugstore.
I still am one of those who think knowing History never did any harm, so I always like this kind of things.

Here in Portugal, in the small fishermens village called Vila Praia de Âncora and where we have the holiday appartment, there is a drugstore that managed to put and old fashion drugstore with those jars and balcony from older days working with new technology!

It's really great but they don´t allow photos on the inside :(
