Iron Bitters


Iron Bitters

An old trade card, circa 1880, encouraging moms to keep their children healthy and strong by giving them Iron Bitters. Made by Brown Chemical Company in Baltimore, this medicine contained cocaine.


Touted for curing indigestion, dyspepsia, fevers, belching and loss of strength, a couple of swigs of the famous Iron Bitters was guaranteed to provide energy and add new life to the nerves.
