New York Store Fixture Co.

...Pharmacy of Bendiner & Schlesinger, corner of Third avenue and Tenth street, New York.

This old established pharmacy, one of the best known in the city, can hardly be recognized now in the transformation that has been effected by enlarging, and the addition of new fixtures. It is eight months now since these fixtures were put in. The increase in trade has been so marked that it is only question of time when they will pay for themselves.

Promotional trading cards of all types were popular during the Victorian era (soap, tonics, sewing machines, shirts, hats, etc.), and patent medicines were no exception. People would collect and trade these trading cards. Manufactures of patent medicines would design and print these cards, then provide them as promotional giveaways to the drug stores that carried their patent medicines. Many cards have survived and the artwork in many cases is magnificent.
