Title

Safe Storing 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Safe Storing" printed in 1955. These "ethical displays" were designed and written by Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist from Paterson, New Jersey. Published by his company Professional Advancement Plan, Pinchak sold the posters to pharmacists around the country. He donated the posters to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy in 2013. The main poster reads: "Safe Storing saves lives. Accidental overdoses of simple household remedies such as aspirin...have caused death! "Child dies from aspirin overdose." [newspaper clipping]." Side poster #1 reads: "Your pharmacist has been educated to regard all medicines as potentially dangerous and stores all poisons in a special cabinet." Side poster #2 reads: "Special cabinet for medicines only. All bottles must be labeled. Return bottles to cabinet as soon as used. Throw away medicines as soon as need for them has passed. Medicines prescribed for one person should never be given to another."
