I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Pharmacy Style, part II
Victorian Pharmacy is a new BBC series recreating the work of an actual Victorian Pharmacy (minus the opium and arsenic, of course).
Here's a video with great shots of the interior.
Thanks to Robert Williams Hitchin for pointing this out.

Really? I want to see it! Fab fab!
I saw this being filmed at the Ironbridge Blists Hill Victorian Town. I went back there a couple of weeks ago, the shop sells Victorian era items - I bought a nice block of carbolic soap which I put in with my vintage clothing in storage to give it that authentic whiff!
So glad you decided to post about this. Can't wait to watch it!
That wonderful photo reminds me of the last surviving chemist's store still open in 1970 in the town where I grew up. Not just the look of the shop with its huge glass colorboys, but the scents!
