About The Poster:

"Specially adapted to female constitutions," this was the first product made by Dr. Kilmer & Co., an enterprise founded in the 1870s by a successful medical practioner from Binghamton, New York. Its label proclaims the medicine as "The Great Blood Purifier and System Regulator. The Only Herbal Alterative and Depurative Ever Discovered. "Kilmer's company was one of the first firms to advertise nationally, and examples of its 18 herbal remedies, including the popular "Swamp Root and Kidney Cure," could be found in homes across the country.

A little bit of trivia: Due to their questionable ingredients and extravagant therapeutic claims, proprietary medicines such as Dr. Kilmer's became targeted by the National Food and Drug Act of 1906. 

This poster is framed and would be ready to be placed on your wall!
