Our Junky Forefathers Pt. 1 – A Century of Syringes

Probably every junky who has picked up a needle has fantasized about using, or at least owning, an authentic turn of the century glass heroin syringe. I admit, I certainly have. It’s titillating just looking through these pictures, imaging the ritual that their use and up-keep demanded.  Though they might not meet modern hygiene standards, the detail and craftsmanship of these syringes make the modern disposable feel cheap and ceremonial. Though their large gauge needles might make some modern junkies of  less resolve might reconsider their  RoA of choice. Would you be among the original junkies and brave the time honored practice of injecting with one of these antique syringes? I’d like to think I would. But maybe something are better left to fantasy.
