Dr Henley's other product
We are all familiar with Henley's IXL Bitters, but he also produced other products, including Celery, Beef, and Iron Tonic. The round, wine shaped cylinder is fairly common, but not the rectangular, applied top one. The tonic was also advertised nicely, with the famous actress Lillian Russell, and the claim that she used the product, being the subject of one such piece. Others are more mundane, with bucolic scenes as subject matter.
