    Tillsonburg, ON Medicines

    Three different medicine bottle sizes, the earliest being Wm. McDonald Jr. Druggist, Tilsonburg (spelled with one 'L'). The other two are identical in embossing with the exception of bottle size, W. McDonald, Chemist & Druggist, Tilsonburg, Ont. They are applied lip bottles (hand made), mint condition, no cracks or chips and embossing is mint. Found inside old building just waiting to be discovered. Still researching but found business listings from 1885 up to 1905 so far. There was a partial label on one with correct Tillsonburg spelling. Small town druggist bottles are more appealing to me personally. I posted this to see if anyone was interested in viewing these bottles.

    The partial label just fell off without any coaxing. I kept it of course but it is just a fragment.
    When I have some time I will scan and post it.

    Get some acid free glue and glue it back on.

    Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
