Seller "2raccoons" is offering this postcard of the interior of a pharmacy / photography store, sent from Michigan to Vermont 102 years ago. Go to the sale page to see more closeups of the cameras and photo products on offer 102 years ago (or if you want to own the original).
By the way, the Battle Creek Sanitarium (they coined the word) was a health and wellness retreat run by two brothers whose surname you might recognize, John Harvey Kellogg and W.K. (Will Keith) Kellogg. Health and wellness...ironic, huh? (But if you eat "natural" Kashi at your breakfast table, like we do, don't be smug—it's owned by Kellogg.)
The Sanitarium must have attracted upscale patients—the cameras in that case are much nicer than box Brownies.
(Thanks to Stan B.)
