The Hub Bottle Washer

...The usefulness of this washer, as per above cuts, we think you will recognize at a glance. Made of solid brass and finished perfectly, it will last for years, and save its price in labor within a week. The washer is made to turn from a horizontal position to a vertical, and when in that position the water flows upward with such force the bottle is thoroughly cleansed of all straws and other substances within an instant.

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.
