358/365–The Past in the Street
In June, the last week of school, Opti and I walked past a collection of glass bottles exhumed from the street during the road repaving. There were a few that caught our eye and we brought home with us. They adorn our steamy kitchen window and leave me wondering…just how common was F. Browns Jamaica Ginger? And what purpose did it serve? Was it for cooking? Serve some sort of medicinal purpose? Was it like bitters, and added to cocktails?
