Welcome to an online collection of artifacts from through Chester’s history. Many of these have been collected over the years and rather than just stay hidden in filing cabinets and boxes, I thought it would be good to display them until (hopefully!) one day Chester gets a museum of its own.
Do you have something in your collection to share? Send a clear photo and short description via email and we’ll add it!
Piso's Pocket Book Almanac - 1919
This miniature little booklet was provided by the Piso Medicine Company and given away by the Chester Drug Co. It shows some scenes of Navy ships during WWI. This almanac is very small, under 2″ tall.
Piso once made a cough remedy which contained chloroform, cannabis indica and “other valuable ingredients” – as well as, initially, opiates.
