A Good Representation

An illustration of the skeleton of a horse, labelled with typical horse diseases. On the reverse is "a good representation of the New Laboratory and Manufactory of Dr. B.J. Kendall Co., Enosburgh Falls, VT, USA, proprietors of the celebrated Kendall's Spavin Cure."

I have to assume this illustration came out of an old medical text on horses, or at least an advertisement booklet.

I'm glad to see that building is still around.

Found in "Baldwin's Fourth Year Reader" published by the American Book Company, 1897.

  1. What were they reading in fourth grade back then?

  2. You know, reading, writing, fistulous withers.

    It would be the equivalent of taking car shop now, I guess.

  3. I have a few old school books with cool thing in them. Not bookmarks, but verses they've written. I have the books packed away right now, but I should dig them out and scan them.
