The 19th Century’s Opioid Crisis
If you think that today’s opioid crisis is a problem, imagine what it must have been like back in the 19th Century and the early parts of the 20th Century. Back then all you had to do was walk into a drug store and for a dime or two-bits you could get a bottle of codeine or another opium-based syrup. Sometimes laced with cocaine. Then you’d guzzle it down and miraculously feel better. In those days more than one person was “Chasing the Dragon” in liquid form.
A Vintage Opium Bottle For Display
One of the great things about this Opium Syrup Bottle is that it looks just like the kind you would find on an apothecary or pharmacy shelves in the 1880s. It was the cure for anything that ailed you. While this one doesn’t have any actual opium in it, the bottle and the labeling certainly look real enough to play the part in a stage production or a scene set.
