    I am curious, where exactly would they place these ads? Was this in newspaper?

    BeauxPurdy,
    No, this was not part of a newspsper. Back in the early days of medicines and cures, the companies would hand out circulars advertising their prodects. Some times they were in drug stores or anyplace that sold similar items. This was some type of handout, one large page folded in half, with all four pages being used. I think this was from sometine around 1900-1910. Without actually looking at a box or bottle label, I am not sure if it is before the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 or not.
