from the July 11, 1929 Trotter & Pacer.
He Should Have Asked for a Sandwich
"I want to get a bottle of Absorbine."
"All right, now what else?"
"Oh, yes, and a pair of bell rubber boots."
"Sorry, sir, but we haven't them."
"Well, this is a fine drug store."
I know up until just a few years ago my hometown corner drug store still carried the original Absorbine.
