      Oh Boy! My olfactory senses kicked in gear just by looking at this bottle of Minard's Liniment. My dad used to smother his legs and arms with this white stuff after coming home from work and after taking his bath. He worked as a Locomotive Millwright and was always lying under or inside of a locomotive all his life. He suffered from Rheumatism and Minard's Liniment was always on his bed table. The bottles were round and smaller when he used it and they came wrapped in paper inside a box. It smelled so strong that our eyes would water when he used it but for him, it was instant relief from pain. I don't think it was Quack Medicine....at least his suffering was lessened when he used it but then it could have been the couple of shots of DeCuyper Gin that was also a routine when he came home. Thanks for the memories! Bob

      That is so crazy! Glad I could trigger those memories with this, I only have a few old bottles and this is by far my favorite!

      Now the issue is, 369 or 359. You have two emails now listed.

      If you are interested in the bottle, it is edkal65's, not mine.
