Electric Bitters Trade Card
08 August 2013
Picked up this cool Electric Bitters trade card on ebay from Dave Cheadle with Dave’s Great Cards. Dave also had the Electric Bitters “Three Little Pigs” (read: Electric Bitters and the Three Little Pigs) card. Just love these advertising pieces that show so much information about the brand. He we have the name, logo, city, products, building, interior departments and other historical information. All illustrated! Dave’s write-up is as follows:
RARE: Electric Bitters, H.E. Bucklen & Co., Chicago & Hamilton, Canada, Dr. King’s New Discovery, Dr. King’s New Life Pills Office & Laboratory, 275 & 276 Michigan Avenue, Chicago, factory view …. Bucklens Arnica Salve / Consumption Printed by Shober & Carqueville Lith. — printed on heavy cardboard stock – folds open to almost 11 inches wide!
