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.
