A social revolution in consumer medicine brought healthcare within everyone’s reach and brought medical science, family remedies and traditional folklore to every high street.
The series reveals how high-street healthcare emerged in just 50 years and how from humble beginnings the profession spawned a new medical industry. An English Victorian pharmacy was stocked with an enormous range of general household products, patent medicines, potions and skin preparations, optical and electrical equipment and over-the-counter remedies, just like a chemist shop today.
