Dr. Blumer's Heal-O-Line Drug Label
This vintage drug label measures 4.1” Wide x 2.25” High and we believe it dates back to the 1910s. According to the label the Heal-O-Line salve was healing “of the highest order for Burns, Wounds, Strains and Sprains, Sunburn, Chilblain, Skin Diseases and Piles.” It also claimed to be very effective as a Massage Cream. It was distributed by the Lincoln Chemical Works of Chicago, Illinois.
Lincoln Chemical Works was established in 1886 and had an extensive product line of toiletries and remedies that they encouraged every day workers to sell for them in their spare time, somewhat like Mary Kay Cosmetics. An ad in Popular Mechanics Magazine from 1922 read, “BIG Money Makers. Large factory offers you big profits on 150 fast sellers. Toilet gift sets, flavoring extracts, remedies, soaps bring you $8.00 to $25.00 daily. Howe of Illinois makes $4.00 an hour. Sample outfit free to workers. Lincoln Chemical Works”.
