"Murine" is still in business making ophthalmic products. Their ads were common on TV as I recall from my younger years.Marine Eye Remedy is a interesting one from digging.
Well they certainly changed with the times, I don't think putting morphine in your eyes is a good thing. I agree some common bottles bring back early memories."Murine" is still in business making ophthalmic products. Their ads were common on TV as I recall from my younger years.
I always found it interesting when digging to find a product that I was already familiar with had been around for many decades, Listerine and Three-In-One oil being a couple examples that come to mind. I began hunting and shooting in my youth, which made a favorite find of a Hoppe's No. 9 (gun cleaning solvent) bottle even though there was nothing remarkable about the small, colorless bottle itself.
That's why most of us walk in rivers that stink,have leeches, snakes and dumps that well have a lot of hazards, to find interesting things from the past and maybe get lucky and find something of value.I've been shocked to find out from time to time that this company or that, with a contemporary sounding name, has been around since, say 1905. for example, Colgate toothpaste has been around since 1873.
[Just to throw some confusion in the water, in the map-collecting business the term "contemporary coloring" means a map that has been colored around the time it was issued, which might 1610 or 1820, etc.]
