Civil Defense Meds

Civil Defense Meds
Originally uploaded by MikeOliveri.

I traced some phone lines into an old room at work which was once used by the local emegency services agency. This box is full of meds to run a shelter, and is probably a throwback to the nuclear paranoia of the Cold War.

The instructions are dated 1962. The box says “no narcotics,” but I bet these meds are really tasty now!

No, I’m not feeling experimental.
