curious

Will people look at our products and think they are weird or fascinating 60 years from now? I got these old bottles and tins from a sale that was truly fascinating! I couldn't help but be intrigued with the old graphics and patinas and the weird and wonderful labels.
In the wonderful category is the "Pynol pine odor" cleaning product from the war years. It says, "Old soldiers never die" and "Woman's Relief Corps". It still has some in the bottle. No!, I didn't open it.
In the wonderful category is the bottle of "Camphor" which says the dosage amount "1 yr=3 drops ......... over 21 yrs =15 drops take with a lump of sugar"!! I has some really awesome half century old crystals growing inside the bottle.

In the weird category is the tin of "Boric Acid" which says on the back label, "Boric acid is safe, non-irritating, soothing, and in solution, a cleansing agent which is beneficially employed in the household for many purposes. As a wash or douche: dissolve one tablespoonful in a pint of warm water. May be freely used as a soothing and cleansing lotion for the eyes, nose, throat, and skin surfaces, or as a cleansing douche."!!!!!!!!!
