    Early Canadian paper label meds/poison

    Just a few bottles I thought I would share. Picked up over the winter and since the thaw.

    Some really nice ones there! That Mitchell bottle looks like it could be pretty old. I love labeled pharmacy bottles, I always pick them up when I can.

    some neat stuff , anything paper label is pretty hard to find in good condition , especially if its from smaller towns or cities . the use of NWT instead of Sask does seem to date that one to be pretty early

    I'd imagine that extract from Toronto is common but there is extracts from smaller towns which are pretty rare

    Those are really cool...I love labeled bottles. Here is a Canadian one (Hamilton, Ontario) that I have had since I was a kid.

    David Bole founded The Bole Drug Company in 1898 so the Winnipeg bottle is likely between 1898 and 1905. After 1905, David Bole founded the National Drug and Chemical Company of Canada.

    Nice piece of Winnipeg history ��

    Nice med nhpharm also looks like a nice paper label collection u have as well!
    also thanks for the info Raypadua knew it was an early bottle but didn’t think it was that early. Think I was going off the dates from the second company founded.
