13 Days of Halloween….

13 Days of Halloween….
Okay kids… for today we have an old vintage favorite.
Today the imagery is from the old calendar pages from
The Antikamnia Chemical Company of St. Louis, Missouri.
Antikamnia was a scary little pill with caffeine, sodium b, citric acid.
and acetanalid…Used as a fever reducer and all around pain reliever.
During 1897-1901 theĀ  company produced several calendars
with “Skeleton Sketches”– based on watercolors
by the local physician-artist Louis Crucius.
I have taken my favorites of these and compiled
them into a collage sheet for ya…
Also I have posted my two fav’s in a bigger format.
