Lotions and Potions

Helsinki-based photographer Rebecca Watson evokes a past era with her images of the Pharmacy Museum and Qwensel House in Turku, Finland. Here you can imagine healing remedies being produced from secret ingredients and the people who once lived in these grand old rooms.  We just couldn't resist these beautiful images.

Words and photography by Rebecca Watson 

I couldn't visit Turku 

without taking a look around 

the Pharmacy Museum & Qwensel House 

along the riverside. 

The town was bustling outside, 

while I silently roamed around 

breathing in the atmosphere of years gone by.
