Memphis Druggist Bottles

Here are a lot of the known Druggist/Apothecary/Pharmacy/Pharmacist Bottles from Memphis. 1850's up to 1920.  Also it should be known that they are still being discovered. Not to be confused with medicines. Most druggist bottles were taken back to the Pharmacist to be refilled. Dates are approximate.

  A work in progress.
