Two early 1900s medicine bottles from Craig's Drug Store with slightly different labels: Barclay H. Craig (creosote) and Craig & Son, (turpentine). Wood creosote was used as a disinfectant and laxative and wood turpentine was used to treat a variety of things including bowel inflamation, colds and rheumatism.
