Lansdale eBay Today: Antique Doctor's Bag from The Lansdale Clinic
A look at rare finds on the online auction site. Today's find is an apothecary bag containing medicine vials from a former clinic on South Broad Street
At one time, Dr. J.B. Jacobs, Dr. D.D. Northrop and Dr. P.L. Bradford practiced medicine from The Lansdale Clinic at 202 S. Broad St. in Lansdale.
The clinic may be long gone, but eBay member bottledigger1072 is selling a remnant from its past — an apothecary bag, complete with empty medicine vials with powder residue and paper labels.
According to the description, the case is intact and closes securely; the sides of the bag are missing stitching. The vials contain labels reading "The Lansdale Clinic" and there are empty spots in the case where vials are missing.
Asking price is $49.99.
