Made by National Drug and Chemical Company of Canada Limited (NADRUCO), this tube of 'Pile Ointment' was used to treat "Blind, Bleeding or Itching Piles"...or hemorrhoids as they're now referred to. As often the case with old packaging, the product descriptions can be quite amusing. On the tube is written, "Bathe affected parts with warm water and castile. Insert nozzle, expel a little ointment internally, also apply externally. Use twice daily or as required. Gently reduce protruding piles before using". Umm, insert the nozzle where?!

Date of manufacture: Between 1909-1920. Printed on the box and tube label is number "5724 The Proprietary or Patent Medicine Act" - an 'act' that began in 1909 and ran until 1920 when it was replaced by the "Food and Drugs Act". NADRUCO, sometimes written Na-Dru-Co, was incorporated in 1905.

CONDITION: Tube has a bakelite cap and is mostly full of product, only slightly used. Box is missing a flap at the opening and the top is flap is very delicate; otherwise the box is in great shape despite its age.
