Along with that “boiling in a pan”, did you lot (or your parents) have to sharpen your needles with “pumice stones”? With advent of plastic syringes, at least you could use them (the stones) to scrub your heels…that Palmer piece could only be useful if you wanted to get rid of Robert Mugabe :)

I remember speaking to a lady in the waiting room at my 3monthlies a while ago, and she assured me that ever since diagnosis in the early 1960s, she’s used plastic syringes with teeny needles (reputedly capable of fitting inside the bores of the biggies that came with the glass syringes…ouch!)
