California Syrup of Figs

California Syrup of Figs
Still available today, this California syrup of figs bottle dates from the Edwardian era. My mother always kept a bottle of this in when I was young for when our stomachs were "out of sorts". A powerful laxative.

During Edward VII's reign a landfill site was in use at Henlow, Bedfordshire, bringing household rubbish from London by train. Today, part of RAF Henlow is built on the site; bottles have turned up there whenever cable trenches etc. are dug there.
