The Apothecarist

By Ffynnoncadno  

Apothecary is a mostly archaic term for a medical professional who formulates and dispenses materia medica (medicine) to physicians, surgeons, and patients. The modern chemist or pharmacist has taken over this role. In some languages and regions, the word "apothecary" is still used to refer to a retail pharmacy or a pharmacist who owns one.
This photograph was taken at The Black Country Living Museum in Dudley in a reconstruction of a Chemist's shop which has been reassembled on site.
