Bottle, 'Baxter’s Lung Preserver'About this object
This bottle once contained 'Baxter's Lung Preserver'. This was made by Christchurch chemist John Baxter, who started his business in the late 1860s. A quick look online through 19th century newspapers will bring up countless enthusiastic letters and quotes from those who claimed that Baxter’s Lung Preserver had cured them of their ills and succeeded where other remedies had failed. We are not sure of the ingredients, but this was a hugely popular product, and a version remains on sale to this day.
This is part of a large collection of chemist's equipment which came from the old Wyndham pharmacy in Balaclava Street. This was the United Friendly Society Dispensary, known as the UFS.
