Images from a German-American Healthcare Advice Book, 1897

Dr. Ward's Wegweiser was published by the J. R. Watkins Medical Co. in Winona, Minnesota, around 1897.

The documents in this section include directions for use and testimonials from satisfied customers of Dr. Ward's products, such as Vegetablisches schmerzstillendes Liniment (Vegetable Anodyne Liniment), Petro-Carbo Salve, Gen-De-Can-Dra für das Blut (a tonic bitters), Improved Condition Pulver (a powder apparently used to treat horses and other livestock), and kleine Leberpillen (Cathartic Liver Pills).
