Ord's Pharmacy Collection - Pennsylvania
This huge collection of pharmacy labels comes from Ord's Pharmacy located at 164 South Main Street, Slippery Rock. Pennsylvania. The 15 drug labels include several poison labels and it took us quite awhile to put it together. The labels , which we think date to the 1930s, measure 2.4" Wide x 1.4" High and still have the glue on the backs. The pharmacy was owned and run by Frank S. Ord and his wife Nell. Frank was born around 1901 and graduated from The University of Pittsburgh in 1923. Mrs. Ord was a 5th grade teacher in Slippery Rock. Sometime in the 1960s (we think) John S. Ord, Frank's son, and his wife took over the pharmacy until it closed. Frank died in 1983 and John died in 1990.
Slippery Rock is located in the North West portion of Pennsylvania and even today only has a population of around 3,000. The area is hilly and strip mining of coal has been its primary commercial industry. The surrounding area is largely agricultural. This is a collection you don't want to miss.
