Glued onto one of the panels is a handwritten list of chemicals. The bottom horizontal compartment is divided into sections to store large and medium-sized solution bottles.
This medicine chest originally belonged to Dr. William Nosper Jakins; was originally donated to the Medical Society of Victoria by Jan Power of Camberwell.
