Item #1 of 2: Wonderful , double sided, medicinal advertising puzzle. 12" tall x 16" long. On the front side is : " The Rainy Day Puzzle" ( Because people stayed inside, when it was a rainy day, and did puzzles ! ) The front of this puzzle is multicolored, and shows the laboratory of C.I.Hood. Also railroad cars making pickups, and a salesman driving a buckboard with samples for sale. Very realistic, depiction There is also advertising on the barn, and the fencing, which was common in those days. Plus a man saying " That's the medicine, I take , peculiar to itself". On the reverse side is : The Balloon Puzzle". This side shows the same farmers field with his wife and family, watching and advertising balloon. that says : " 100 doses for $ 1.00 ". Plus the same barn, and fence area , plus a nice poem. The puzzle, is really nice, with only one small piece at the bottom missing. ( If re framed tighter, this would be an excellent piece!!). Item # 2 of 2: The original box, the puzzle came in . Good top , but the side are almost gone. Just included as a go with, for this lot( RH)
