Cincinnati, OH, corner of McMicken and Ravine
Ashton Collier's CANNABIS, OPIUM & CHLOROFORM Remedy
As per an Internet auctioneer:
This neat old remedy is from ASHTON COLLIER'S DRUG STORE in CINCINNATI, OHIO. The drug store was located at the corner of McMicken Ave. and Ravine St. CHLORODYNE was invented by Dr. J. Collis Browne, a physician in the British Indian Army. Its original purpose was in the treatment of CHOLERA. Dr. Browne sold his formula to a pharmacist in Davenport, Iowa who advertised it widely as a treatment for CHOLERA, DIARRHEA, INSOMNIA, NEURALGIA, and MIGRAINES. Its principle ingredients were LAUDANUM (an alcoholic solution of OPIUM), CANNABIS and CHLOROFORM. The product was very popular, and pharmacists often made their generic versions for their customers. This is one such example. It is still corked, and is 3.5" tall. The contents have evaporated over the past 100 years, so only a residue remains.
