The Morley brothers started their wholesale and retail drug house in Austin, Texas located at 206 East Street in 1874. W. J. lived in St. Louis and managed the house and laboratory and S. K. continued in the Austin business. Both man were from Indiana.

In 1874 W. J. Morley established the Morley Drug Co. which was located at 207 Pecan Street in St Louis. A couple years later S. K. Morley brother of W. J. Morley would join him in the business. The company would relocated again a few years later to a Victorian style brick building bearing the companies name and date established. The address now would be 209 6th Street still in St. Louis.

I thought this would be a good thread to expand on. I live in Central Texas and collect Austin bottles including the Morley Bros who had a shop in Austin and St. Louis. I'm always interested in seeing what is all out there and expanding my collection. I recently acquired the paperwork below which shows a list of the products sold by the Morley Bros. I will add photos of the Morley's I have as well as the ones I know exist. Feel free to share your items too!
