Advertising Song Card for H. E. Wells & Co., Family Druggist

Bridgeport, OH: H. E. Wells & Co., [1885]. An advertising card for H. E. Wells & Co., a family druggist from Bridgeport, OH. Based on the brief description on the card, it appears as though Wells sold remedies for both humans and farm animals, like horses and cattle. On the back of the card is the song "Now or Never", and it appears as though these 'Song Cards' were collectible advertising cards from select businesses in Bridgeport, OH. Under Well's company information it states "song cards found only at the following houses", and then lists six additional businesses. Dated from newspaper ads placed in either the Bridgeport, OH or Wheeling, WV (they are only six miles apart) papers for H. E. Wells and the other stores. Most ads were from the mid to late 1880s. Single page, double sided, printed on purple card. OCLC 0 (February 2022). Measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/4".

And said ; 'My friend, if ever

You've got a duty to be done,

Then do it now or never!' "
