Perhaps the Salicylic acid was for helping with the pain and skin irritation associated with having irritant acids and a spirit burner to play with. Hot flame, hot glass, hot water, molten Sulphur, hot spitting solutions, acid splashes, etc.
I had a lot of small burns.


Yes Volty A pint of Smiths can do that to you.

I used to go to Hoggs in Sand Pits / Parade for my chemicals. He sold them to me in large test tubes with a cork stopper.
I think the glassware was my favourite part of chemistry.

I never really consciously made the connection there Phil but I have always been fussy about the glasses I serve drinks in,
Whisky isn't the same from a Port glass, for instance.
Now I see where it comes from. I will have to dig out my glass stoppered reagent bottles and put them into service.

Like yours, it doesn't get much use.

While I appreciate these are favourite objects, I fail to see where the fall in the Toy category.

Anyone interested in Railways, both model and real might be interested in Pete Watermans activities.
He owns a factory in Crewe where steam locomotives are built and restored, called London & North Western Railway Heritage Company Limited.
He also sells a range of O Gauge (1/48 scale) model railway kits and he has a brilliant O gauge layout based on Leamington Spa station.
