Raymonds Pectoral Plaster and other Goodies

We live in an old duplex built before the turn of the LAST century.  As a result, we find some interesting things sometimes.  A recent construction project which involved tearing out our kitchen ceiling resulted in some very cool finds.

What we found:

  • ceiling stuffA sheet of paper describing Raymond’s Pectoral Plaster and its’ uses
  • A Postcard from Meriden Connecticut postmarked 1909
  • A bible lesson copyrighted 1896
  • A piece of glass with a label from Monroe Pharmacal co in Rochester NY
  • Bits and pieces of glass, some labeled some not, one which had ‘Buffalo NY’ etched in it
  • 3 ceramic white tubes with knobs at the end
  • a clothespin
  • some very short lengths of copper piping
  • A metal mesh ball with a hole at the bottom and a spike at the top

I have no idea what most of this stuff is but I find it fascinating that it was all piled up together in our ceiling.  If you have any thoughts let us know!  More Detailed Pictures Below:
