In 1859 a chemist L.Q.C. Wishart introduced his Pine Tree Tar Cordial. He was located at 10 South Second St. in Philadelphia. Business must have been doing well, as he moved to a larger facility at 232 North Second St. in Philadelphia. In 1861 he would start producing Dr. Wishart's Great America Dyspepsia Pills and in 1865 Dr. Wishart's Worm Sugar Drops. Sometime in the early 1870s his son Henry R. Wishart would inherit the Pine Tree Tar Cordial. A short time later he sold the company to Harry Campion and his son who were druggists in the Philadelphia area. Harry's other son joined the company and the name was changed to The Campion Bothers and would continue producing the Pine Tree Tar Cordial into the 1900s.

An advertisement stated, "Pine Tree Tar Cordial was a remedy for the cure of throat and lung diseases".

An interesting and colorful bottle.  [jet] [ph:L]
