Box of “Valet” Auto Strop Razor Blades. Made by the manufacturers of the Valet Auto Strop Safety Razor.
Blades still in their original miniature sweet yellow envelopes. Original cost: 25P.
There is an address on the price label. Thanks to g)o000000glitis, I can feed my obsessive streak and find the exact address. It is a locksmith’s. Perhaps it was a quaint pharmacy, with the look and feel of the optician’s next store. The shop was called “Hope-Smith Chemists” when a box of razor blades cost 25p. I wonder how much that translates to today?
Status: Borrowed from Mr. OP on condition I absolutely did not open one of the little envelopes. Precious as they are, I was true to my word, and the crumbling box has been returned safely to its place on the shelf.
Kill-ratio: 38:3 / ~13:1
