    My first local pharmacy

    Dug my first local pharmacy this morning.

    Embossed: P.M. Kelly / Pharmacist / Phila with a graphic of a mortar & pestle at center.
    BIM, with original cork.

    From what I was able to learn, P.M. Kelly graduated from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in 1900.
    A 1903 PCP alumni journal lists Kelly's pharmacy at 20th and Federal Streets, Philly.

    wow! it's incredible! I also dug my first pharmacy bottle when I was a college student but unfortunately, I had to sell it, but I believe my bottle waits for me somewhere!
