    A bottle of Bayer's 'Heroin'. Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold as a non-addictive substitute for morphine... It was also used to treat children suffering with a strong cough.................. Wow if this is true then grama's era was kinda different than I tend to picture. Drinking Coke and hard core stuff like this... Grand mother and father did some fairly potent medicines it would appear.
