It's ironic that I planned on posting today this medicine with dogs on it, before I found out which day my dog Rhoada would die (today).
See story here:
http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/227656-r-i-p-rhoada-26-5-17

In Memory of Rhoada, I will continue with this post.

I won this (you put in $5 for tickets in a drawing at the bottle club, and I won and went to select this off the "$5 table") Lyman Brown Seven Barks medicine bottle last week at Bottle Club.

If you look at photo two, which I took about half way through the procedure (as it happened to be working), you see a moderate amount of grease marker(?) all over the colourful side of the box.

I told someone at the club, "I can fix that."

I ended up using a white rubber eraser of high quality to remove it.

Now my late 1910s to 1920s package looks pretty new again.

While it is machine made (something I usually avoid), it was too good to pass up. I also won twice, so I picked up that Pineules bottle I posted last night.

The product has dried up inside the bottle.

A great addition but painful reminder.

    That worked very good, well done. In time it will become a great addition and reminder of a great friend, with less pain. O

    Thank you, Malkey. Sadly, CW staff deleted my post on Rhoda. I emailed them over it but haven't seen any response. It's been 4 days.
