Vintage Pharmacy

I think these are some of my favourite vintage photos ever to have crossed my desk. From their context I can tell you they are American, from about 1915-20 and that they might originate somewhere around Philadelphia, but that's it. There's something very atmospheric about them and, in fact, it derives from the fact they are amateur shots. A professional I'm sure would have taken account of possible glare from the overhead lamps and so produced much less atmospheric photos.
