Compound Licorice Powder

Compound Licorice Powder

Lawrence of Berkley, L. Adams, and I hit the road Saturday morning for a little photo expedition to the Wood County Historical Museum. They had one of the bedrooms of the infirmary set-up as their general store exhibit and it provided a few interesting subjects. This tin for "Compound Licorice Power U.S.P." was curious though -- what might our ancestors have thought licorice could cure? The Christmas decorations blocked access to some of the other subjects though so I think we'll be making another trip once they reopen in the spring.
