This is one of my favourite images from the Archives collection at Addenbrooke’s Hospital
AHPH1/2/87 Pharmacy at Old Addenbrooke’s probably taken in the early 1920s. Showing an apprentice in a protective apron using a tincture press, with a mortar and pestle in the foreground.
The Pharmacy staff at Addenbrooke’s today have started a Twitter account @CUH_Pharmacy
On Thursdays they are doing a then and now section, well worth a look.
