Peery's Dead Shot Vermifuge

This is a trade card advertising Wright's various preparations, including McMunn's Elixir of Opium and Peery's Dead Shot Vermifuge. And then there's Crossman's Specific Mixture, which sounds particularly vague.

On the front of the card, for your amusement, is a puzzle. Try this before and after applying the Roman Eye Balsam to see if there's a difference.

Webster's Cut Rate Drug Store was located on Court Street in Binghamton, New York. Here's a card showing Court Street about 25 years after the trade card was printed.

The signs are hard to make out, so it's difficult to know exactly where Webster's would have been on this card.
Here's the back of the card, sent to Miss Margaret Sipe from Miss Clara Abbott in 1908.


  1. Difficult to know which remedy to choose, they all sound so delightful ;)
    I like the puzzle card :)

  2. A glass of McMunn's, please!
