About this object

This is a clear glass square shaped bottle with 'Barry / New York / No.2 Tinte Dye' embossed on four sides. We are not sure what shade No 2 produced, but this was used as a hair dye.

This bottle is part of a large collection of chemist's equipment which came from the old Wyndham pharmacy in Balaclava Street. The pharmacy was a United Friendly Society Dispensary, known as the UFS.
