dad always used it for that - except for the last time - when I realised from the strange smell that he had used cod liver oil instead!

Heh. I resisted the urge to sniff the camphorated oil.

That looks like the medicine cupboard at my parents (before my Aunt reorganised it...) :) When Boots used to sell proper chemicals!

I have a very large collection of old medicines. My olive oil is in a lovely bottle and called Sweet Oil. :) Nice shot, btw.

A deliberate collection Caine? This cabinet belongs to my grandad, who I'm pretty sure would know his way around "proper chemicals".

Caine says:

Yes, a deliberate collection. Most everything I have still has all the original ingredients. Everything from herbs to oils to homeopathics to mother's milk substitute to poisons. (Things like bottles of aconite, hemlock and such.)
