The first mention of an apothecary actually dates back to the time of Moses. An apothecary is the historical name for the profession of individuals who used to formulate and dispense medicines, ointments and tinctures to doctors and patients.
In the 19th century the old time apothecary started to fade away and became what we know of today as the pharmacist. Although we can still get medicines, ointments and various tinctures from our local pharmacist, there will always be something intriguing, mysterious and awe-inspiring about the apothecary. Just take a look at some of these old time apothecary shops.
