These are three different bottles that all held Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root Kidney, Liver and Bladder Cure. The cylindrical bottle in the center was a sample given to potential customers.
The 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act banned the use of the word "cure" on bottles or in advertising in the U.S.unless the seller proved the claim in a clinical environment. I am not sure any did. These three, along with others you may find in your travels that use the word cure are at least 106 years old. Good rule of thumb!
