Harrods is known for its opulence, luxe and prim and proper British culture. But did you know that you could buy cocaine and heroin over the counter at Harrods until 1916? It may come as a surprise, but shop assistants at this orderly store would suggest pure cocaine, aka “Ryno’s Hay Fever and Catarrh Remedy” for a red and runny nose. What’s more, Harrods also provided complimentary gift packs containing morphine and cocaine to soldiers during World War I.
