Caption: The Age of Drugs. Satirical artwork showing the interior of an early-20th-century drugstore. The pharmicist (right) is dispensing labelled medicine bottles to his customers. The bottles on the counter include arsenic, strychnine, opium, and cocaine. At left, a saloon keeper is leaning against a column, and the caption (bottom) indicates that he can't compete with the new drug trade. This chromolithograph, by US cartoonist Louis Dalrymple (1866-1905) was published in New York, USA, as a centrefold in the magazine 'Puck' (volume 48, number 1231, 10 October 1900).
